Mini Law School Online:  The 2020 Election

September 8, 2020 - October 27, 2020

Registration is now closed.  If you wish to register late, please contact mini-law@colorado.edu.

This special eight-week online series leading up to election day will focus on voting rights, election law, and the impacts of the 2020 election, including climate change, immigration, and more!  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 six of the eight 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 2-3 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.
