Inn Program Reprise: Amenders: Equality War! Celebrating 150 Years of the Fourteenth Amendment


COURSE OVERVIEW:

This program commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Fourteenth Amendment, capturing the struggle over this amendment’s drafting, implementation, and interpretation, along with its continuing impact and importance. The sweep of this undeniably important aspect of American history is depicted through the most unlikely of vehicles: an extended metaphor of superheroes engaged in an ongoing battle against super-villains who would thwart guarantees given equally to all.

The course is presented in five sections:

  • Act I: The Amenders assemble!
  • Act II: The Amenders a create a new amendment!
  • Act III: The Amenders battle corruption!
  • Act IV: The Amenders restore protections!
  • Act V: What's next?!
Each section contains a story video, a transcript of the video, supporting resources and a short assignment.

There is one final assessment to check your learning, an evaluation and then a certificate can be issued for attorneys wishing to self-report for CLE credit (this program should be valid for 1.5 general CLE credits in most jurisdictions).

Pricing:

Members: $30
Non-members: $45

Thanks to the Garland R. Walker American Inn of Court in Houston, TX for their content idea and presentation! Remember, they are lawyers not actors and Hollywood camera operators and audio technicians...
