New Lecture Series: Criminal Cases that Changed America

This year (2022-2023) we’ll be exploring landmark criminal cases that shaped our Bill of Rights and the criminal justice system. Join us as we examine four famous cases that changed America. These cases will explore the right to remain silent, the right against unreasonable search and seizures, and the right to an attorney.
