This course takes recently enacted controversial laws as end points and explores their historical, psychological, and political origins. How does prejudicial thought and behavior shape our laws? What can we as officers of the court do to affect change? Is change in our legal system even necessary or appropriate?
Focusing on the policy origins of law, this course will employ staged readings of both theatrical selections as well as actual transcripts to provide insight into a facilitated panel discussion of the issues.
Selected scenes will be read from the The Great Game, an ambitious, award winning collection of theater written by multiple playwrights exploring the culture, history, and politics of Afghanistan.
This course has been previously accredited in multiple jurisdictions. We are adding more jurisdictions every day. If you are interested in us accrediting in your state let us know and we will get on it.
The moderated webcast of this course has been accredited multiple times–jurisdictions such as Minnesota require resubmission of paperwork for all moderated webcasts each time they are held, so these credits are considered “applied for credits”.

I really enjoyed this different format and way of educating folks about bias; I too believe art can be more effective in ‘changing our hearts’ regarding our biases than can any court case.
