Not So Common Law

We are going to explore the historical and social background of some of the intriguing, interesting and important legal cases which have had lasting impact on our society and affect our lives today. Each month we will have a presentation about some of these famous and fascinating cases and the opportunity to discuss legal current affairs. Legal issues and law cases will be based on current events and participants’ interests
