In this course, you will be introduced to the players in an array of trials, the times in which they were conducted, and the enormous sociopolitical influence of the verdicts. While the law is the essential underpinning of democracy, we will explore how it can be bent and twisted by the very societies it exists to protect, which can trigger societal changes. Together we will explore over 100 years of compelling courtroom drama.

Dr. Silvia Solomon is a retired educator who worked in schools, universities, and the Ontario Ministry of Education. Since her retirement, she has presented the Great Trial series at the University of Toronto, Toronto Metropolitan University, the Toronto Reference Library, the 92nd St. Y, the OLLI program in California and the Instituto d'Allende in Mexico.
