Mini Law School, a seven-week series taught by Colorado Law faculty, provides community members with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Covering topics of general applicability and interest, the series seeks to provide participants with an understanding of how the legal system operates and how it impacts everyday life.

Mini Law School lectures occur on Tuesday evenings from Sept. 16 through Oct. 28. Class is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and is held in the Wittemyer Courtroom at the Wolf Law Building on the CU-Boulder campus. Each week, a different topic is presented - constitutional law with Associate Professor Scott Moss, environmental law with Professor Mark Squillace, litigation with Associate Professor Frederick Bloom, estate planning and taxation with Professor Wayne Gazur, contracts and business law with Professor Mark Loewenstein, family law with Professor Jennifer Hendricks, and criminal procedure with Clinical Professor Ann England.

“The law for so many of us is a distant construct,” past participant Eric Gorsenger explained. “The Mini Law School allows participants to peek behind the curtain to understand the ‘what’ and the ‘why,’ if only just a bit. What a fascinating and effective way of bringing the law school into the community.”

Colorado Law is honored to present this empowering program, sharing knowledge about the law with community members. The registration fee for the entire series is $90 and participants who attend 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!
