FSEM: The Good, Bad, Ugly
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Have you ever heard about a legal case and wondered if what is being reported is actually true, or asked yourself how a particular outcome could come to be? There seems to be a national conversation about the documentary entitled "Making a Murderer" but there are many thought provoking legal cases that have occurred in the United States. Are you aware of the Supreme Court ruling finding that some human beings can be treated as property, or the Supreme Court ruling finding that women with a law degree and bar exam passage could legally be denied a license to practice law despite having met all qualifications to be licensed? Did you hear about the jury decision that mandated the Ku Klux Klan pay millions of dollars to the family of one of their victims? The United States Supreme Court has even ruled as to whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable. In this seminar we will explore the legal system by analyzing various court cases. We will begin with some noteworthy events and follow the progress through investigation, trial and post trial work. Through this process we will analyze the expected and unexpected results that may occur within our nation's system of justice.
