CWSL Faculty Deliver a Trifecta of Lectures for Osher’s Summer Quarter

Dean Schaumann and Profs. Ken Klein and Glenn Smith

California Western School of Law faculty recently delivered a trifecta of lectures for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego as part of Osher’s Law and Society Summer Quarter classes.

First up was Prof. Ken Klein who presented “In the Next Wildfire, You are Under-insured.” In his lecture, Prof. Klein spoke about how most Americans have inadequate homeowners insurance should their home burn down. Prof. Klein explained how it happens, why it happens and how to fix it.

Prof. Glenn Smith spoke about the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2017-2018 term. Prof. Smith recapped the Term’s most important decisions and offered some thought on the court’s future direction. This presentation was Prof. Smith’s seventh annual summer lecture wrapping up the U.S. Supreme Court’s just-completed term.

Dean Niels Schaumann completed the trio of lectures with a talk entitled, “Copyright: What It Is, How It Works.” Dean Schaumann spoke about how copyright law is not widely understood—not even by lawyers. The dean told the story of copyright, clarifying the issues and introduced the policies and players that shaped copyright law and govern it today.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC San Diego is a membership program for adults over the age of 50 who want to be part of a learning community with peers. They are committed to providing members with intellectually stimulating learning opportunities throughout the year.
