All Akron Law students invited to reception celebrating the history of the courts of the Northern District of Ohio – RSVP today
On Sept. 27, The University of Akron School of Law proudly hosts a symposium celebrating the release of the book, Justice and Legal Change on the Shores of Lake Erie: A History of the Northern District of Ohio (Ohio Univ. Press 2012) that explores the many ways that the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio affected the development of American law and history. The book offers a “greatest hits” of cases from the Northern District, like the Kent State shootings, school desegregation, conscientious objection, abortion, and pollution on the Cuyahoga River. Beginning with the court’s creation in 1855, the book traces cases from fugitive slave rescues, political corruption, the Eugene Debs prosecution, to the immigration of alleged Nazi war criminal John Demyanjuk. This program provides the backstory on the big cases that came before the court and confirms the significant role played by district courts in the history of the United States, and features commentary by several judges from the Northern District and presentations by the book editors and chapter authors. Chief Judge Solomon Oliver, Jr. of the Northern District will provide concluding remarks. The symposium is “sold out,” but Akron Law students are welcome to attend the reception following the symposium. To register for the reception, RSVP no later than Monday, September 24 to Michele Novachek (firstname.lastname@example.org). Be sure to write “Northern District Reception-Student Registration” in the subject line of your email to Mrs. Novachek.Read More
