JOUR 303 - Covering Great Trials in History: The Impact of the Press and Public on Justice


FDR: HU Humanities Distribution
Credits: 3

This class will provide an opportunity for you to explore crimes throughout history and discuss how society dealt rightly or wrongly with people who were accused of violating the values and norms of the time. Using the cases of people accused of spying, war crimes and mass murder, this course will explore the complexities of the conflict between the freedom of the press and the ideal of a fair trial. At the end of the term, you will be far more knowledgeable about what happens when the law, the press and the public collide in a perfect storm at a particular moment in history.
