China: Past, Present and Future
China's ascension to great power status would seem to be inevitable. Does this threaten the world and the US and how should America respond to an emerging China? This seminar will discuss China's culture and history, Beijing grand strategy, the Taiwan issue and US policy towards China.

Crime and Punishment in McLean County
Have you ever wanted to know how the criminal justice system REALLY works? Key professionals in the McLean County criminal justice system will discuss their roles in the investigation, charging, prosecution, defense and trial of a criminal defendant.

Attendees will be provided with a crime scenario and will have the opportunity to follow the work of the criminal justice professionals from the initial investigation through the trial. You will also learn just how the media informs us as this process unfolds.

A side benefit: the opportunity to "pick the brains" of key decision makers in the justice system and ask the questions you have always wanted to ask.
