We all cherish the freedoms guaranteed to us in the American Constitution and, more specifically, in the Bill of Rights.  Classes will focus on the text of the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments and the difficulties and controversies defining some of these freedoms today.  Freedom of speech and the press: what are the limits to this freedom and under what circumstances is censorship justified?  Freedom of religion: how can we reconcile the basic right to the free exercise with the anti-establishment clause?  The right to bear arms: what does the Second Amendment actually say and how do the NRA and others interpret it?  The right against unreasonable searches and seizures: how do social media, browsing history, GPS tracking, and electronic payment systems impact the right against government intrusions?  The right to a fair trial: do the judicial due process protections afforded by the Fifth Amendment still work today?  In the spirit of the Bill of Rights, class discussions will be open and free in the hope of understanding differing interpretations.  

Schedule : Weekly - Fri 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM; 5 sessions; starting 3/31/2017, ending 5/5/2017 ; Class Skip Dates : (No class on 4/14/2017)
