Sonoran Room: January 11, 18, 25, February 1, 8, 15
This course will examine numerous historically significant court cases from the past 100 years. We will use the cases to review and discuss several important individual and societal issues. Major course topics will include: 1) What is justice? 2) How do we know right from wrong? 3) What is a lie? 4) How should liars be held accountable? 5) Who should be held accountable for injuries caused by Coca-Cola, hot coffee, guns, tobacco, opioids, and more? We will use history, philosophy, ethics, and law to analyze these complex and controversial topics.
