Past Classes with Dave Mitchell

March 30 @ 1:00 pm

Revolutionary Lawyering

This course will examine the role of the legal system as an historically-evolved mechanism and codification of the capitalist system, as well as a “relief valve” that functions to contain the social justice movement, especially the struggles of the dispossessed. This course will also consider the part that can be played by legal practitioners in revolutionary societal transformation.
