Event Date: October 1, 2014
Time: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Public Event:

This event is designed to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Professor Anne Emanuel served as the law clerk in the 5th Circuit United States Court of Appeals for Chief Justice Elbert Parr Tuttle, the judge who led the federal court with jurisdiction over most of the Deep South through the most tumultuous years of the civil rights revolution. Professor Emanuel is now the author of the book entitled “Elbert Parr Tuttle: Chief Justice of the Civil Rights Revolution” where she discusses the implementation of landmark cases in the South relating to voter registration, school desegregation, access to public transportation, and other important civil rights with the purpose of promoting justice in the face of Jim Crow laws and other discriminatory forces. Professor Emanuel plans to discuss the legacy of civil rights jurisprudence and what does that jurisprudence mean for us today as incoming lawyers to the legal profession.

Dinner will be served!
