Law in the News Discussion

When: Sat., Oct. 13, 1 p.m. 2018

Led by retired attorney Michael Cohen. Michael Cohen will discuss recent court decisions receiving significant news coverage, addressing some of the legal issues on which they were based and explore some of the ways in which the legal underpinnings impacted the ultimate decisions. The news is full of stories about interesting and important legal cases, topics as varied as the conduct of our political leaders, the safety of frequently used products and whether the baking of a wedding cake can be considered to be a form of constitutionally protected free speech. These cases help to shape society and are frequently the subject of media commentators and personal conversations. But how much is really understand about the law and the legal process on which these decisions are based? This discussion will provide a more in-depth understanding of the legal issues, so to help potentially change the way we view these cases and their outcomes.
