Class schedule and activities for first few weeks of November

Because I continue to have way too much fun in class answering all your good questions, I think I now need to put class plans/activities for the coming week in writing here so I make sure we keep moving forward (and so you all can know just what you need to read/do):

Wednesday, Nov 2:  Set up next week's role play, review/recap Berry, Williams and Mayes

Friday, Nov 4: Finish up homicides doctrines (with felony murder and MM), including my (great but dated) Simpson's hypo if we have time, and then watching 86-minute long documentary William Kuntsler: Disturbing the Universe (starting at 3:30pm), and then happy-hour

Monday, Nov 7:  Introduce rape/sexual offenses history and doctrines and enduring challenges

Wednesday, Nov 9:  Legislative drafting role play in which two (or more) legislative subcommittees will present proposals for either:

1.  Drafting a new/improved rape provision for Oliwood/MPC to replace Section 213.1(1),

OR

2.  Drafting a "most serious sex offense always requiring expulsion and prosecution" for a school campus behavior code?

Please indicate your preference in the comments.  Thanks.

Down to throw down on choice #2

I recommend the committee for any of these options to be balanced equally between genders. I think that would produce beneficial outcomes, however I may be wrong.

it has recently been brought to my attention that this thread was not in fact a class-wide vote on a single group activity, but rather a role play sign up. I do not know how I messed this up. That notwithstanding, I respectfully ask to be allowed to decline participation in this most worthwhile endeavor.

thank you all.
