Legal Dialogues is a one-credit course offered for Credit/No Credit only (the course will not be graded). Students will attend a series of six (6) dialogues throughout the school year – three (3) in the fall and three (3) in the spring. The dialogues will be organized by law student organizations to create a discussion about significant legal, social and political issues. At each dialogue, there will be an opportunity to discuss and reflect on the techniques we use for furthering the discussion, what is persuasive and what is not, and how the dialogues can best be conducted in a public/professional setting. The goal of the series is to further public dialogue and problem solving skills, as well as to take advantage of the diverse backgrounds and views in our community to enrich the life of the law school. Students will sign in for each hour of attendance and will be required to submit up to 3 page reflection papers after each dialogue. Students who must miss parts of the dialogues due to documented class conflicts will be offered a make-up class session after the close of the series. Students will receive an incomplete grade at the end of fall and credit after the close of the series in the spring.
