Trials Of World History

Monday Scholars: The Great Trials of World History
Explore the Crossroads of History and Law

Monday April 8: 1:00 – 2:00 PM
The Nuremberg Trials

Together we will watch a ½ hour video lecture followed by a discussion, lead by OWL’s Caroline Ugurlu, based on the presented talk.

No trial, according to Professor Linder, provides a better basis for understanding the nature and causes of evil than the war crime trials in Nuremberg from 1945 to 1949. In this lecture, we will focus on the first of 12 trials, regarded by scholars as “The Trial of the Major War Criminals.”

About the Professor:
Douglas O. Linder is the Elmer Powell Peer Professor of Law at the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Law and earned his degree from Stanford Law School. Professor Linder has published extensively and received his law school’s highest teaching award (twice) and its highest publishing award (three times).
