Odyssey presents four case studies involving controversial issues and the highly influentia—and widely disputed—court decisions that followed. Case topics include peremptory challenge, using race as a jury selection factor; how English Common Law evolved; information collected without a search warrant; and how technology collects modern evidence, such as DNA samples and cellphone records. Who were the parties and what was at stake? What were the major points and why did the courts rule accordingly? How have these decisions affected similar disputes and are they the final word on these topics? Join us to discover the surprising foundations of modern U.S. case law! Details here.
