What Do They Teach in Law School Anyway

A short article at Law.Com (courtesy of Paul Caron) reports on a new course being offered by the Faculty of Law at the Universita degli Studi Roma Tre in Italy that looks at the history and development of the Mafia.  The course drew an enrollment of 500 students for the first day.  The article notes that "mafia research centers have sprung up in recent years, and at least two museums have been devoted to the subject, including one in Corleone, the Sicilian town whose name is practically synonymous with Cosa Nostra." What type of course would one need to offer in an American law school to draw that kind of enrollment?  Certainly not White Collar Crime. (ph)
