New Faculty Profile: Legal Writing Professor Brandon Stump

For Legal Writing Professor Brandon Stump, who joined the CSU Cleveland-Marshall College of Law faculty in the fall of 2020, legal writing was not always the focus of his ambitions with the written word. After graduating from the West Virginia University College of Law, he worked as a civil rights attorney representing victims of police brutality with Goodman & Hurwitz and later as a research attorney for the Michigan Court of Appeals.

CMBA Media & the Law Series: Covering the Supreme Court

Weight: 
0
Speakers/Special Guests: 

Panelists:

Adam Liptak, NY Times

Richard Davis, author of “Covering the U.S. Supreme Court in the Digital Age

Location: 
Zoom

* Moderators: Lee Fisher, Dean, Cleveland-Marshall Law School, Cleveland State University and former Attorney General for the State of Ohio; Jessica Berg, CWRU School of Law

 The U.S. Supreme Court seeks to limit information about its internal deliberations, while the press's job is to report and disseminate as much information as possible about the Court and the cases. Combined with increasing demands for transparency in the digital age, the tension between an institution that seeks to preserve its opaqueness and a press corps that demands greater transparency results in an interesting dynamic. This CLE will explore the relationship between the Justices and the press, the media' approach to the Court's docket, and the effects of news coverage on public opinion.

*Moderator: Lee Fisher, Dean, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University

This panel will focus on the intersection of journalism and ethics in covering protests and protest narratives in the news, also addressing how adaptive technology is changing the ways that protests are covered. When Cleveland announced its downtown curfew, there didn’t seem to be a press policy exception, raising questions about exactly who qualifies as press (with reference to recent litigation in Portland on this subject).
