OBJECTION! CURRENT, CONTENTIOUS AND CONFUSING LEGAL BATTLES
Irving Labovitz, J.D.
DESCRIPTION: Popular television shows and films on the law have made the legal profession seem exciting and glamorous. Discover how real law can be even more stimulating than its dramatic facsimile. This fast-paced program will focus on selected current, highly publicized, volatile and contentious legal issues presented in cases pending before, or just decided by, federal and state trial and appellate courts, as well as by the U.S. Supreme Court. Each week, multiple current “hot button” legal issues will be examined and discussed. This series will equip the informed participant to be more conversant about the law, and to learn the likely immediate/ long-term personal importance of pivotal judicial determinations upon each and all citizens.
[Prior to the first session, participants are invited to attend a pre-session primer in the Barry and Florence Friedberg Auditorium on the FAU Boca Campus at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 9, 2013, outlining the structure of federal and state appellate court processes.]
