Event Image Exhibit Closing: ‘Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich’
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Program in Jewish Studies, the William A. Wise Law Library at the University of Colorado Law School, and cosponsors at the University of Colorado Boulder will honor International Holocaust Remembrance Day with the highly acclaimed international exhibit Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich and a public lecture by visiting scholar Professor Nils Roemer (Jan. 27). Both are free and open to the public.

The Lawyers Without Rights exhibit will be on display Jan. 5 through Jan. 30 in the William A. Wise Law Library in the Wolf Law Building on the CU Boulder campus. The exhibit is sponsored by the William A. Wise Library at the University of Colorado Law School and the CU Program in Jewish Studies, in conjunction with the American Bar Association and the German Federal Bar.

The Lawyers Without Rights exhibit has been shown in nearly 100 cities across Germany, the United States, and other parts of the world. The idea for the exhibit was conceived in 1998 when an Israeli lawyer asked the regional bar of Berlin for a list of Jewish lawyers whose licenses had been revoked by the Nazi regime.

“The regional bar decided not only to research a list of names, but also to try to find out more about the fates behind all those names,” said Axel Filges, past president of the German Federal Bar. “Some were able to leave the country after the Nazis came into power, but very many of them were incarcerated or murdered. The non-Jewish German lawyers of those days remained silent. They failed miserably, and so did the lawyers’ organizations. We do not know why.”

After the Berlin bar transformed its research into an exhibit, other regional bars began asking whether they could show it and add their own research. “So, like a puzzle, a portrait of the fate of Jewish lawyers in Germany has emerged step by step,” Filges said.

Monday Workshops: The Use of a Tablet PC and Clickers in a Flipped Classroom
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Use of a Tablet PC and Clickers in a Flipped Classroom - ATLAS 301

Jeffrey Knutsen, Instructor, Mechanical Engineering, CU Boulder

In a flipped classroom students are expected to review low-level information prior to the class period. This allows the instructor to focus class time on higher-level concepts and class discussion. At the most basic level a Tablet PC allows the instructor to project handwriting and other diagrams directly to the screen. However, a Tablet PC interfaced with Microsoft OneNote and other software allows more sophisticated use of technology in the classroom, including developing screencasts outside of class and to present clicker questions in a more interactive manner. This session focuses on the use of OneNote in and out of the classroom, and also provides some guidance on how to use the software to organize a course throughout the semester. More information can be found here: http://www.learnmeche.com/screencasts.

Special Physics Colloquium, "Unlocking neutrino mysteries with the NOvA experiment"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Delivered by: Christopher Brackhouse, California Institute of Technology

Location: DUAN G130

Abstract: The 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery of the phenomenon of neutrino oscillations, which implies that neutrinos are not massless as we had previously believed. This raises a wealth of new and intriguing questions. What is the ordering of the neutrino mass states? Might they violate matter/antimatter symmetry? What structure, if any, does the neutrino mixing matrix have? The NOvA experiment directly addresses these questions by measuring changes undergone by a powerful neutrino beam over an 810 km baseline, from its source at Fermilab, Illinois to a huge 14 kton detector in Ash River, Minnesota. I will give a brief overview of neutrino oscillations, then present our latest results, their implications, and prospects for the future.
