Extension Learning Experiences offers UB students a curricular-based intersession opportunity. These topic-based exploratory experiences are offered by distinguished faculty in a setting outside of the classroom and allow students to either explore academic areas previously not considered or delve into their discipline of choice.
August 8 - August 15, 2015, Chautauqua Institute
Participants will explore the role of lawyers as counselors and agents of social change in local, national, and global contexts. Our focus will be on both the socio-historical context of the Nuremberg Trials and current legal issues. Students will observe court proceedings, dissect primary legal documents, and read context narratives to prepare them for their experiential learning modules. We will explore how different communities and belief systems influence laws and legal institutions. We will also take time to recognize the achievements and impact of Justice Jackson, a local lawyer who became a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, on the national and global scale and discuss how each person has the ability to advocate for, and participate in, social change.
More information regarding cost and registration will be posted in coming weeks. For pressing questions, please contact our office at 716-645-8177 or email any questions to email@example.com.
