Mini Law School: Whether or Not to Regulate the Public and Private Sectors

Mini Law School: Whether or Not to Regulate the Public and Private Sectors


Embark on a legal journey to discover the surprising foundations of modern United States case law.

Join us for a day-long virtual seminar focusing on four controversial case studies involving three of the most influential and widely discussed court decisions in American history and an international case study! Who were the parties and what was at stake? What were the major points of the cases and why did the courts rule the way they did? How have these decisions affected similar disputes since those rulings? Would a jury today reach the same conclusion?  

Open to all, this program is designed for lawyers and non-lawyers alike and is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity. Register for a single session, multiple sessions or the full day!

Johns Hopkins graduates are offered an all-inclusive full-day ticket at reduced cost. Please select the correct ticket pricing during registration.
