Sexual violence has been perpetrated since ancient times. The #MeToo movement is just one example of the multi-layered and complex prevalence of sexual assault in today?s culture. This course addresses sexual assault, its history, and the laws that criminalize it. Through readings, small group discussion, practical applications including a mock trial, and speakers, students will gain insight into how the law shapes rape culture and how, in turn, rape culture affects law.
