OLLI: Fall 2018 Classes

Friday, September 14, 2018 - 1:30pm
Event Description: 
As events on a scale not encountered since Richard Nixon's downfall unfold in today's Washington, what could be more insightful in these fraught times than to take a good, up-close look at how the Supreme Court works, especially in the context of how the justices handled the landmark decisions of the "Warren Court" era?

In this course, Bill O'Connor, JD will focus on the landmark Supreme Court decisions from the 'Warren Court" e.g,: cases on abortion, school prayer, freedom of the press, and the right to counsel, using recordings of actual oral arguments.  He will also cover the inner procedures of the Supreme Court, how cases move to final opinions.

Osher Life long Learning Institute at Dominican University of California engages people over 50 with intellectually stimulating lectures and workshops that promote informed thinking and intelligent discussion with social interaction. Call (415) 458-3763 or go to dominican.edu/osher to register or for more information. Scholarships available. This class is held at the Dance Palace.
