This special seven-week online series in Spring 2021 will focus on business law and its role in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.  Open to all, this program is designed for non-lawyers, is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity, and is a great chance to get a taste of what law school is like.  Participants who view at least five of the seven sessions receive a Mini Law School Certificate (no academic credit is received for participation).  There are no required readings, tests, or homework assignments - just a great opportunity to learn about the law!

Individuals may participate in this special online edition of Mini Law School in two ways:  (1) live, from approximately 6pm to 7:30pm MDT on the night of the lecture, or (2) on-demand at any time of your choosing, beginning approximately 2 days after the live lecture.  All participants can watch any lectures they miss live by watching a recording at their convenience at a later date.
