Ignorance of the law is no excuse.  And there is no reason to wait to find out how our legal society operates.  These FLCs are great, not only for students interested in the practice of law, but for students who want to further understand the American legal system.

Civil Rights Movement & the Law

Civil Rights Movement & the Law - FLC 617

This FLC introduces students to the rich and vibrant experiences that have shaped the development of diverse Chicana and Chicano communities in the United States. The course illustrates how people of Mexican descent and the communities they inhabit have experienced political intrusions and, at the same time, maintained rich and vibrant cultures in the U.S. borderlands region and in U.S. society in general. Students, in the company of their FLC instructors, will visit cultural and historical sites of significance in the New Mexico region and understand how issues of race, class, gender and sexuality continue to influence dynamic Mexican American communities and cultures.
