And Justice for All: The Expression of Law in the West

Mar 5, 2019


The lawlessness of the Wild West quickly lost its appeal for some. Theft, claim-jumping and murder were enough to bring Colorado's legal practices more in line with the civilized East. We examine the history of law—one of the most treasured ideas of civilization—in Denver and visit some of the modern structures where, we hope, Justice is truly blind. The application and interpretation of the letter of the law remain contentious today, and in past years it could get outright dangerous. You don't have to be a lawyer to enjoy the journey. Don't object—join us for some bar-passing fun! Includes bus transportation and guides.
