This week-long course examines the Nazi philosophy of law
emanating from the egregious racial ideology and concludes with the ways in which international law sought justice and created a system of international human rights designed to avoid a repetition of the Holocaust. In the process, fundamental lessons for constitutional democracies in the 21st century will emerge.
Held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to
the Holocaust,, this course includes lecture and discussion with Prof. Reicher, study of the Museum’s artifacts, presentation of archival, documentary, and feature film footage, and a guest lecture by Museum Director David G. Marwell, Ph.D., about his experience as Chief of Investigative Research with the U.S. Department of Justice and the search for Josef Mengele. The course also incorporates the Museum’s exhibitions.
The course is intended for practicing attorneys, law faculty, and students, but the content will be accessible to anyone wishing to explore deeply the legal dimension to the Holocaust.
CLE credit approval is pending for this course. Upon approval, the course will be worth 30 hours of CLE
Ethics and Professionalism Credit. For participation in one-day segments, 6 CLE credits will be awarded.
Pre-registration is required.
