Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a 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:

With the recent passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, attention has focused on the empty seat on the Supreme Court. Debates are swirling about Scalia’s possible successor and what changes the appointment, and the election, could mean for our constitutional rights. But what does it really take to change constitutional law? Many Americans think that it is simply the will of five justices, but as David Cole shows in his latest book, ENGINES OF LIBERTY: The Power of Citizen Activists to Make Constitutional Law, constitutional change is driven primarily not by the justices or the lawyers before them, but by the often unsung activism of organized citizens.

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.

On Friday, November 18, the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a day-long Criminal Justice Forum Symposium, "The Role of the Prosecutor and the Grand Jury In Police Use of Deadly Force Cases."

About the Lecture:

Events in Cleveland over the past few years have been at the center of the ongoing national debate over how the 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. 

PanelISTS:

The symposium will feature leading scholars from around the country, including Professors R. Michael Cassidy (Boston College Law School), Rebecca Roiphe (New York School of Law), Ric Simmons (Ohio State University Moritz College of Law), Jenali Jefferson Exum (University of Toledo College of Law), among others, as well as Cleveland-Marshall Law Professors Lolita Buckner Inniss and Jonathan Witmer-Rich.

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

Current United States Senator Sherrod Brown has been a vocal proponent of labor protections for U.S. workers while representing Ohioans in Congress for over two decades. During his time in Congress, he has argued against free trade on the grounds that labor activism was responsible for the growth of the U.S. middle class.

Senator Brown will explain his stance on labor rights issues during a free lecture at Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Monday, November 14 at 12 p.m. in the school’s Moot Court Room. The topic of his Employment and Labor Law Lecture is "Assault on Workers’ Rights: Labor Law and the Erosion of Worker Protections."

About the Lecture:

Senator Brown will speak from experience about his position on the importance of labor laws and his determination to fight against efforts to undermine them. He has led bipartisan opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement and to the Central America Free Trade Agreement, believing the U.S. economy is harmed by trade relations with countries lacking labor regulations born from activism.

About Stephen E. Gottlieb:

Brown is the senior United States Senator from Ohio. Before his election to the Senate, he was a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Ohio’s 13th congressional district. He previously served as Ohio Secretary of State and as a member of the Ohio House of Representatives.

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

CLE credit:

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).
