Mini Law School

The University of Colorado Law School’s popular Mini Law School launches its seventh season this fall with a brand-new curriculum that addresses some of today’s most pressing legal issues. ​Taught ​by ​Colorado ​Law ​faculty, ​​Mini ​Law ​School ​explores ​a ​different ​area ​of ​the ​law ​each ​week:

  • Who is the "Public" in Federal Public Lands?
  • Over-Incarceration in America - Safety or Scam?
  • Bad Lawyering
  • The Ever-Changing Face of Immigration Law
  • What is International Law?
  • The Government's Speech and the Constitution
  • The Confrontation Clause
  • Artificial Intelligence and Law

Mini ​Law ​School ​is ​an ​eight-week ​series designed to help ​non-lawyers ​​better ​understand ​some ​of ​the ​most ​interesting ​aspects ​of ​our ​legal ​system.

The registration fee for the entire series is $100 and participants who view at least six of the eight sessions receive a Mini Law School Certificate (no academic credit is received for participation). There are no required readings, tests, or homework assignments. Register here.

Discounts are available for CU faculty, staff, and students as well as K-12 teachers (email for more information).
