The People vs. Moses: A Trial and Panel Discussion

CLE credit: 
1 hour

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

Cleveland-Marshall will host "The People versus Moses," a dramatic mock trial and panel discussion, presented by Kol HaLev, Cleveland's Reconstructionist Jewish Community. Distinguished members of Cleveland's legal community will argue and preside over a theatrical mock trial and interfaith panel discussion. The event features a cast of legal, religious and academic experts with the audience serving as the jury.

One of the most enigmatic characters in the bible, Moses was never quite at ease in any of his roles – as royalty, as voice and shepherd of the people, or as liberator – but nonetheless acted with conviction when called upon by God to help redeem the slaves from Egypt. This year’s event explores complex ethical issues of relativity: Were the deaths of thousands of Egyptians worth the price of the Hebrews’ freedom? And to what extent can Moses himself be held responsible for such a massive tragedy?

Presiding Judge: The Honorable Michael J. Ryan, Judge, Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas

Defense Attorney: Charna Sherman, President, Charna E. Sherman Law Offices

Prosecuting Attorney: Steven M. Dettelbach, Partner, BakerHostetler and former U.S. Attorney, Northern District of Ohio

  • The Reverend Richard M. Gibson, Pastor, Elizabeth Baptist Church

Synopsis

When most justices of the Supreme Court leave the bench, their absence is felt. It was true of Thurgood Marshall and Byron White, of Sandra Day O’Connor and William Rehnquist. But a few Supreme Court justices have cut such a unique path that their departure leaves not just an absence, but a void—a void nearly impossible to fill. Such was Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., even though he was succeeded by Benjamin Cardozo. Such was Chief Justice John Marshall, followed by Roger Brook Taney, and Joseph Story, followed by the now unknown Levi Woodbury.

Antonin Scalia was one those few justices whose impact changed the paradigm of how the Supreme Court sees itself in a constitutional republic. At bottom, Scalia saw judging as a moral quest—a quest not to find the right answer, but to find the way to the right answer. The question he asked of himself and his fellow justices—Quo Vadis?—where are you going?—remains before all who may someday don a black robe and sit in judgment of their fellow citizens.

Synopsis

Trade agreements are currently the central economic focus of this Administration. President Obama’s trade policy is embodied by two major initiatives, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The automobile industry is an integral part of the global economy representing roughly ten percent of world trade. This industry is in transition from market specific competition to global competition and this new business model has both an economic impact and technological impact on regulators around the world. Now may be the best time ever to achieve the objectives of globally harmonized technical regulations for the automobile industry.

Prior to joining GTPA, Wilber was Director, Vehicle Safety and Global Regulations for the American Automobile Manufacturer Association and later the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, a government affairs trade association of automobile manufacturers. In this role he was recognized as an industry strategist and spokesman on public policy issues related to motor vehicle safety and international regulatory harmonization and responsible for development of public policy positions for US based automobile manufacturers regarding both domestic and international technical regulations.

Law school teaches you the law, but nothing can prepare you for the types of personalities, career changes and dealings that you will have in practice. This seminar explores some different personalities that new lawyers encounter in their practice and effective strategies for dealing with them—normal and problem clients, professional and Rambo litigators and the spectrum of judicial temperament. It also explores some situations you may find yourself in, such as leaving a firm. Examples will be provided and you will be encouraged to discuss and interact with the presenters when they discuss the strategies, professional courtesies and ideas. The presenters will provide you with the related rules, including ethical rules, the law, and not-so-common sense.

Pre-registration is requested by Friday, February 12 at careernull@law.csuohio.nulledu or 216-687-6871.
