FYS 036 Trials of the Century

This interdisciplinary seminar will examine the "Trials of the Century" that have captivated the general public's attention because of the highly controversial issues they raised, the publicity they received, and the decisions that resulted. By examining these great trials, using political, historical and legal academic lenses, we will refine our critical analytical skills and better understand both our legal and political systems, and the resulting changes in law and society.
