Location: 
1801 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, Ohio 44115 (Moot Court Room)

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host “The Year Without a Justice: The Scalia Vacancy and the Future of the Supreme Court,” Tuesday, October 18 at 5 p.m. The panel discussion features Dahlia Lithwick, Senior Editor at Slate Magazine and Kristine Lucius, Democratic Chief Counsel and Staff Director, Senate Judiciary Committee. 

The lecture is sponsored by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Alliance for Justice, American Constitution Society, Leadership Council on Civil and Human Rights, National Council of Jewish Women, and People for the American Way.

About the Lecture:

When Chief Justice Roberts drops his gavel on October 3, the U.S. Supreme Court begins a new term under circumstances unprecedented in American history. On news of the late Justice Antonin Scalia's death on February 13, the Senate's leadership responded in a way that had never happened before, announcing that no nominee of the sitting President would receive Senate confirmation, under any circumstances. The reason offered was the goal to leave the Court's ideological balance in the hands of voters. No stalemate of that kind has ever before occurred, and it will likely produce one of the longest unfilled vacancies in the Court's entire history. 

The nationally prominent panelists will put the controversy in its context and cut through the obfuscating rhetoric to work through the questions it poses: questions of constitutional magnitude over the relationship of law and politics, the role of the branches in preserving the rule of law, and the path forward from the bitterness of today's judicial politics.

The Friedman and Gilbert Criminal Justice Forum: David Cole - Beyond Ferguson: Can We End Mass Incarceration and Racial Disparity in Criminal Justice?

CLE credit:

Location: 
1801 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, Ohio 44115 (Moot Court Room)

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host The Friedman and Gilbert Criminal Justice Forum, "Beyond Ferguson: Can We End Mass Incarceration and Racial Disparity in Criminal Justice?" Wednesday, December 7 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by David Cole, the Hon. George J. Mitchell Professor in Law and Public Policy at Georgetown Law School.

About the Lecture:

Police shootings, stop-and-frisk, Black Lives Matter, and rising crime in some cities have brought renewed attention to the persistent challenge of living up to the challenge implied in the term "criminal justice." A new consensus seems to have emerged that we are incarcerating too many for too long, and that harsh street policing is not necessarily the best way to address inner-city poverty. But offering a vision for moving forward is always more difficult than criticizing the status quo. What can and should be done to bring justice to the criminal justice system, and what will it take?

About David Cole:

Cole is the Hon. George J. Mitchell Professor in Law and Public Policy at Georgetown Law, a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books, the legal affairs correspondent for The Nation, and an award-winning author of several books, including Enemy Aliens: Double Standards and Constitutional Freedoms in the War on Terrorism, which won the American Book Award. He has written for the New York Times, Washington Post, New Yorker, Atlantic, and New Republic, among many others. He has received many awards for his human rights work and advocacy, including the Inaugural Norman Dorsen Presidential Prize from the ACLU for lifetime commitment to civil liberties. He was an Open Society Foundations Fellow in 2014.

About the Lecture:

Events in Cleveland over the past few years have been at the center of the ongoing national debate over how the criminal justice system should respond to cases involving police use of deadly force. Many states are considering changes to the rules governing prosecutors and grand juries, and Ohio is no exception. A task force created by the Ohio Supreme Court recently released a report suggesting a number of reforms to Ohio's grand jury rules, and those reforms are now under consideration.

These reforms, as well as other approaches from around the country, will be discussed at this symposium. Panelists will examine the potential conflicts facing prosecutors in cases involving police use of deadly force and consider proposals to mitigate those conflicts. Potential reforms to the grand jury process, such as modifying grand jury secrecy rules and giving the grand jury greater independence, will be analyzed. Panelists will also consider the role of race in police use of deadly force cases.

Constitution Day Lecture: Stephen E. Gottlieb - Unfit for Democracy: The Roberts Court and the Breakdown of American Politics

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour
Weight: 
0
Location: 
1801 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, Ohio 44115 (Moot Court Room)

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a Constitution Day Lecture, “Unfit for Democracy: The Roberts Court and the Breakdown of American Politics,” Thursday, September 15 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by Stephen E. Gottlieb, the Jay and Ruth Caplan Distinguished Professor of Law at Albany Law School.

About the Lecture:

For the last three decades, discussion of constitutional interpretation has been dominated by the argument over originalism. At this point the methodology of constitutional interpretation has to be reconstructed. The starting point for that has to be the challenge of political science to the ways the Court treats democracy. It raises fundamental questions about how the Constitution should be read.

About Stephen E. Gottlieb:

Gottlieb practiced with a New York City law firm and served as assistant general counsel for Community Action for Legal Services (now Legal Services of New York). He has previously served as a visiting professor at Cleveland-Marshall as well as Akron, Marquette and Suffolk Schools of Law. 

Gottlieb has written a number of books: Unfit for Democracy: The Roberts Court and the Breakdown of American Politics (2016); Morality Imposed: The Rehnquist Court and Liberty in America (2000); Jurisprudence: Cases and Materials (1st ed., 1993; 2nd ed. 2006, 3rd ed. 2015 with West, Bix and Lytton); Public Values in Constitutional Law (editor/contributor, 1993); Toward a Usable Past (ed. with Finkelman, 1991); Systematic Litigation Planning (1978).
