'All Rise' Film Festival Returns for Second Year

The Festival allows everyone to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of law on our lives and how it is reflected in the art of filmmaking. 

CSU|LAW and the CSU School of Film and Media Arts are proud to announce the return of "All Rise: A Festival of Film & Law" for its highly anticipated second year. This unique and engaging festival is set to captivate audiences once again with its compelling exploration of the fascinating interplay between the world of film and the realm of law. 

 "All Rise" is not just a film festival; it is an immersive experience that bridges the gap between two seemingly distinct worlds, shedding light on how they intersect and influence one another.

Monday Morning Message 10.9.23 Let Freedom Read

We mourn the many lives lost in Israel this past weekend and send thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.


“…..libraries should be open to all — except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.”
— President John F. Kennedy

“Don't join the book burners. Don't think you're going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go in your library and read every book...”― President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Monday Morning Message 10.2.23 Remember Your Why

Regardless of what we do in our lives, our why—our driving purpose, cause or belief—never changes.”
― Simon Sinek

Over the past weeks, I’ve shared 2 of “The 10 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Law School” that I shared with our first year class. Here’s the 3rd and final one I’m sharing…. I have spared you all 10!

When I started law school, I wish I had known to remember my why.

Two bricklayers were asked: “What are you doing?’ The first, exhausted and unhappy, said, “I am laying bricks.” The second, energized and in good spirits, said, “I am building a cathedral.”

Tuesday Morning Message 9.26.23 The Power of Listening.

Last week, I noted that when I welcomed our first year class of law students, I shared “The 10 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Law School.” Here’s another “thing I wish I had known.”

When I started law school, I wish I had known the power of listening.

We need leaders who recognize the value of asking rather than telling, of listening rather than jumping to conclusions. As Steven Covey notes in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, “seek first to understand, then to be understood.”

War Crimes in Ukraine

Moot Court Room

Conference: War Crimes in Ukraine: The Abduction and Deportation of Children

This Conference will address the ongoing war in Ukraine with a particular focus on the war crime of abduction and deportation of Ukrainian children by the Russian authorities. Over the past year, Russian authorities have willfully separated Ukrainian children from their families and have orchestrated a policy whereby such children are adopted by Russian families. The forcible abduction and deportation of children is a war crime under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court; moreover, it is also illegal under customary international law and can amount to genocide, if committed with the intent to destroy a particular national, ethnic, racial or religious group.  The International Criminal Court has already issued arrest warrants against Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ma
