Odyssey: Mini Law School in Annapolis: An All-Day Seminar Covering Four Contentious Cases

Come spend the day in a classroom at the United States Naval Academy with current and former instructors as they present a series of legal case studies focusing on some of the most influential and widely debated court decisions in American history, ranging from the Navy's use of sonar technology and its effect on marine life to prisoner detainment, affirmative action, and the issue of full voting rights in Congress for the representative of the citizens of the nation's capital. Who were the parties and what was at stake? What were the major points of the cases and why did the courts rule the way they did? How have these decisions affected similar disputes? Join us on campus as we embark on a legal journey to discover the foundations of United States case law. Note: Enrolled students will be provided with detailed information on where to park, how to board the shuttle bus that will take you through the gate and straight to the classroom, and where the buffet lunch will be served (included with tuition).
