News and Notes
Hosted by politics Professor Ron Kahn, this all-Oberlin conference features dozens of alumni--including several noted legal experts--speaking on such timely topics as affirmative action, capital punishment, Internet law, recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions, the capping of damage awards, and much more.
Intended for both lawyers and non-lawyers, each of the eight panels promises lively debate and discussion of the more controversial legal and social issues that affect all Americans.
Kicking off the conference is a Friday evening dinner and keynote address by Richard Lempert '64, who, as a distinguished professor of sociology and law at the University of Michigan, drafted the highly publicized affirmative action policy upheld this summer by the Supreme Court. Also featured is Vanderbilt University law professor Nancy King '82, who will speak Saturday on "Wrongful Convictions in the 21st Century."
Many of the sessions will be held in the lecture halls of Oberlin's new Science Center, with overnight accommodations available nearby.
