Senior Staff meeting
Holiday reception for Law faculty and staff - details to follow
In honor of Constitution Day, please join C|M|LAW and Cleveland State University for a premier showing of the film, The Constitution Project: Search and Seizure,* which features Mapp v. Ohio, a landmark U.S. Supreme Court Fourth Amendment case that originated in the Cleveland area.
After the film, Professor Jonathan Witmer-Rich will lead a discussion about the exclusionary rule: what should happen when the police illegally invade someone's privacy in violation of the Fourth Amendment? He will discuss the history of the exclusionary rule, describe the continued debate about the wisdom of excluding reliable evidence in a criminal trial, and then lead the audience in a discussion of that debate.
A reception in the law school atrium will follow the program.
*This film is a project of the Leonore Annenberg Institute for Civics at the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and it will not be officially released until Constitution Day 2012.
National Advisory Council Meeting. By invitation only.
Ohio Civil Rights Commission will hold a hearing in C|M|LAW’s Moot Court Room. The meeting is open to the public and students are particularly encouraged to attend. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a question and answer session with the attendees. The hearing itself will begin at 10 a.m. and will last approximately two hours. Two cases will be heard -- one regarding a housing discrimination issue involving alleged discrimination by a landlord against families with children and the other concerning an allegation of wrongful termination due to unlawful retaliation against an employee.
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission enforces state laws against discrimination in employment, public accommodations, housing, credit and higher education on the bases of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, ancestry or familial status.
