This course will be taught in Spring 2020, and is currently in development. The course will be similar to the last time I taught it, in Spring 2018. Note that this is a 4-credit course. The fourth credit comes because there is a mandatory evening speakers series, with eight evening events (most likely to be on Monday evenings, 5:30-7:00pm, but to be confirmed). The speakers series is always the highlight of the course, as it involves people who have served on death row but were innocent of their crimes and others with personal stories that make the material of the course come alive.
