Spring 2022 Courses / Contemporary Issues / LAW & ORDER
Coordinators: Michael Wellner, Bob Gottfried, David Judlowitz
It is not just a TV crime series; it’s a topic that has galvanized virtually every segment of our society. Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, white supremacy, reparations for over 200 years of slavery, statues of Confederate leaders, crime in all its forms.
What to do about the police? What’s happening in the courts? Guns, guns and more guns? Surveillance? Is justice available to all? America is divided internally about many of these matters. Join us as we discuss these subjects in depth, and see if we can come up with any solutions.
