The Black Law Students Association at American University's Washington College of Law is hosting a public 'teach-in' today to talk about the legal issues surrounding the death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. 

The group is expecting more than 100 people to attend, including NAACP president Benjamin Jealous. Topics to be discussed include race and self defense. 

Trayvon Martin was a Florida teenager who was shot and killed by a self-appointed neighborhood watchman armed with a gun in February. The case garnered national attention after George Zimmerman shot the unarmed 17-year-old and was not arrested. He cited Florida's 'stand your ground' law in claiming self defense.
