Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host a Criminal Justice Forum, "White Collar Shortcuts" Tuesday, April 18 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by Ellen S. Podgor, the Gary R. Trombley Family White-Collar Crime Research Professor and Professor of Law at Stetson University College of Law.
In the aftermath of financial and corporate frauds, the government has been touting that they will crack down on white collar crime. Behind this aggressive rhetoric, however, is a reality of the government using shortcuts in both agency policy and prosecutorial practices. Building statistics that may play well with the press will not correct misconduct in the boardroom, corruption in government offices, and computer crimes that plague the Internet.
A former deputy prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, Professor Ellen S. Podgor teaches in the areas of white collar crime, criminal law and international criminal law. Podgor is the co-author of numerous books including White Collar Crime in a Nutshell, Understanding International Criminal Law, Mastering Criminal Law, White Collar Crime Hornbook, and Mastering Criminal Procedure Vol. I and Vol. II. She has authored more than 70 law review articles and essays in the areas of computer crime, international criminal law, lawyer's ethics, criminal discovery, prosecutorial discretion, corporate criminality, and other white collar crime topics. Podgor previously taught at Georgia State University College of Law and St. Thomas University College of Law, was a visiting professor at University of Georgia School of Law, George Washington University Law School and held a visiting endowed chair position at University of Alabama School of Law.
Podgor has been interviewed on National Public Radio and been quoted in newspapers across the country, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, LA Times, National Law Journal, Chicago Tribune, and Business Week. She is the editor of the highly ranked White Collar Crime Prof Blog.

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.
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.
