So you want to be a Lawyer
“So you want to be a lawyer” is a six-week course being offered by Attorney David Clermont. Everyone knows a lawyer, some even know what lawyers do… kind of. You may even think you would like to become a lawyer. But what if, before investing multiple years and tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to become a lawyer, someone could tell you what it was like to actually BE a lawyer. This course, through a series of lectures detailing the areas of real estate, trusts, estates, personal injury, criminal, contracts and domestic law, will seek to distinguish between what you see on TV versus the actual practice of law and is ideal for anyone currently in or currently considering a career in the legal industry. (6 hours) $150

Image & Forum Theater
Consists of creating short scenes, no longer than a minute or two, with a strong image that the entire audience can easily understand, identify, and apply to their own lives. Images can be realistic, allegorical, surrealistic, symbolic or metaphorical. The only thing that matters is that it is true; that it is felt as true by the protagonist. Images tell the story in a condensed, outline form using pictures with very little or no talking. The audience is pulled in immediately because they know exactly what is being said. Movement, music, and ensemble are used to heighten the impact. Forum Theater is a type of theatrical game where a problem is shown in an unresolved form. The audience is invited to suggest and enact solutions. The scenario is then repeated, allowing the audience to offer alternative solutions. The game is a contest between the audience and actors trying to bring the play (or oppression) to a different end. The result is a pooling of knowledge, tactics and experiences. As the audience participates in enacting solutions to break the cycle of oppression they are also “rehearsing for life.” $250
