Through the Smoke: Legal Trends and Gun Violence Details


Price:
$19.99

Course Description

We are experiencing an epidemic of gun violence in this country.

The parents of a student killed in the 2018 massacre at Marjory Stone-man Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, the deadliest high school shooting in United States history, set up and tricked a former president of the National Rifle Association into giving a high school graduation speech defending gun rights in front of 3,044 empty chairs, one chair for each student who couldn?t graduate because they were killed by gun violence.

A political stunt? Perhaps, yet it effectively illustrates the severity of the problem. It further invites us to examine the legislative solutions we ap-ply to those societal problems that impact us most. We are living through a stress test exposing flaws inherent to our system of justice. (We look to the law to fix the flaws!)

With our time together today, we will examine contemporary legal trends in regard to the 1) problem related to Gun Violence, and 2) Legislative solutions in response to those problems, 3) Impacting the rights and remedies of so many, 4) Conclude: Take Away Observations) re: Impact on Practitioners.

Course Agenda

  • Legal trends regarding gun violence
  • The history of gun violence in the U.S.
  • The trajectory of gun legislation
  • Factors contributing to gun violence such as mental health, domes-tic violence, etc.
