How does the Supreme Court choose 80 cases per year, when it actually receives 10,000 “appeals” per year?  What do the nine Justices do when the oral argument is over and they disappear behind the curtain?  Do they lobby each other?  Are they friends or enemies?  Who writes the decision and why?  Who w...

LLCC Courses & Events are Suspended

Dear LLCC Members & Friends,

Effective 8 a.m., Thursday, March 12, all LLCC classes & activities are suspended until further notice due to the spreading impact of COVID-19. We are monitoring the situation very closely, and we will continue to provide health information as the crisis goes on.

Much as we value these opportunities to gather together as a community, nothing matters more than taking sensible precautions to help keep one another safe.

We are hoping that the courses we are cancelling now can be rescheduled later in the year. We will notify you immediately if circumstances change.  If you have registered for courses to be held in March or April, you will be receiving refunds from Brown Paper Tickets for what you paid. 

We want to thank all of the instructors and other volunteers who work so hard to make the courses such fun and informative events. We are grateful, as always, for their energy and enthusiasm. 

We know that news of the coronavirus is unsettling. Here are the precautions we're taking, and ask that everyone take, to help make our community as safe as possible for all:

  • wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds

  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (contains at least 60% alcohol) if soap and water are not available

  • stay home if you're sick or even suspect you might be getting sick

  • be evaluated by a medical professional if you have respiratory symptoms

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

  • cover coughs with a tissue or flexed elbow

  • use touch-free friendly gestures as greetings, rather than shaking hands or hugging

  • clean phones and keyboards regularly
