Lincoln Heads to the Law School

A new traveling exhibition at Pace Law School tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to meet the Constitutional challenges of the Civil War. Stop by on March 6 for the opening reception.

Pace Law Library is proud to have been selected as a site for “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a traveling exhibition which examines how President Lincoln used the Constitution to confront three intertwined crises of the Civil War—the secession of Southern states, slavery, and civil liberties.

Using the Constitution as the cohesive thread, “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” offers a fresh and innovative perspective on Lincoln that focuses on his struggle to meet the political and constitutional challenges of the Civil War.

The exhibition will open on Monday, March 5, and to celebrate the opening, the Library will host a reception on Tuesday, March 6, at 5:00 p.m. when Pace Law School Assistant Dean Mark Shulman will discuss “What Abraham Lincoln Can Teach Us about Confronting National Security Threats in the 21st Century.”

In addition to the opening reception, the Library is sponsoring free programs in connection with the exhibition including a talk on “Lincoln’s Conception of Presidential Authority in Crisis Times” with Professor Ralph Stein on Wednesday, March 21 at 5:00 p.m.

Organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office and made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the exhibition features informative panels depicting photographic reproductions of original documents, including a draft of Lincoln’s first inaugural speech, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Thirteenth Amendment.

The exhibition is free and open to the public and will be on display until April 11.

20/20 Vision for 2020 Ethics

Pace Law School hosts the annual Blank Lecture featuring Justice Elizabeth Lacy, Senior Justice on the Virginia Supreme Court, on bringing the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct into the 21st century.

Legal EthicsThe legal profession has changed rapidly over the past three decades with the introduction of the Internet and social networking, and other advances in technology. Yet the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct for attorneys has been updated only twice since its creation in 1983. With this in mind, in 2009, then-ABA President Carolyn B. Lamm convened the Commission on Ethics 20/20 to bring the Model Rules into the 21st century.

Justice Elizabeth Lacy, Senior Justice on the Virginia Supreme Court and a member of the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20, will lay out the key issues being discussed by the Commission, and how potential changes could impact lawyers, when she delivers the 21st annual Philip B. Blank Memorial Lecture on Legal Ethics at 3:00 p.m. on November 10 in the Robert B. Fleming Moot Courtroom at the Pace Law School. This event is free and open to the public. There will be a live webcast available at law.pace.edu.

Unlikely Allies Work Together

In the fall of 2008, an unlikely group of prisoner advocates, victims, and victim advocates came together to produce a cutting-edge curriculum for incarcerated people who have committed homicide-related offenses. On October 17, three of the co-creators will participate in a panel discussion at Pace Law School.

On Monday, October 17, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Tudor Room, Pace Law School will host Bridging the Gap: Lessons Learned from a Reentry Collaboration with Victims and Victim Advocates, a panel discussion featuring the co-creators of the “Coming to Terms” curriculum, a 16-week innovative rehabilitation course for incarcerated people which has been used in Sing Sing and Fishkill Correctional Facilities.

Moderated by curriculum co-creator Susan Herman, associate professor in the Department of Criminal Justice and Security at Pace and former executive director of the National Center for Victims of Crime, the panel will discuss the history of the project, the process and experience of collaboration, the curriculum it produced, and its resulting policy implications.

“The curriculum provides an opportunity for men and women who are serving long sentences for violent crimes to gain insight, take responsibility for their crimes, and prepare for their eventual release. It takes people on a very personal journey. The program utilizes a victim-focused framework in individual and group settings in select prisons,” said Herman, who is author of Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime.

Panelists include:

  • Elizabeth Gaynes, executive director of the Osborne Association, a nonprofit dedicated to serving those affected by incarceration, and nationally-recognized expert on the impact of incarceration and reentry on children and families
  • Kathy Boudin, who was formerly incarcerated and now serves as director of the Criminal Justice Initiative: Supporting Children, Families, and Communities at Columbia
  • Maria Verzulli, whose sister was the victim of a homicide, is now the victim/survivor advocate for New Yorkers for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, where she focuses on programs that fill gaps in victim services and address root causes of crime and violence.

For students on the NYC Campus interested in attending, there will be a bus leaving Schimmel at 4:30 p.m. and returning after the program. First-come, first-served.

For more information on the panel and speakers, read the press release.

Time to Lay Down the Law

The next flock of legal eagles takes flight at the 33rd Annual Pace Law School Commencement ceremony on May 8. Join us in congratulating the Class of 2011 on their accomplishments! >>Read More

Commencement season has begun as the Pace Law School celebrates its 33rd Annual Commencement on May 8 in WP.

Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman, an influential figure in the New York State judicial system for the past four decades, will receive an honorary degree and deliver the Commencement address.

Lippman, Chief Judge of the State of New York and Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals appointed by Governor David A. Paterson, has upheld the constitutional rights of the accused, insisting that the Fourth Amendment requires particularized concrete information to justify intrusive searches; striking down the warrantless secret planting of a GPS device on a citizen’s vehicle; and requiring trial courts to carefully scrutinize guilty pleas to ensure that they are truly informed and voluntary, and has played a central role in many far-reaching reforms including the introduction of problem-solving community courts, drug courts, and domestic violence courts throughout the state.

Lippman has been in the news recently for his fervent push, in the face of a state fiscal crisis, to increase funding for civil legal services programs that help low-income New York residents faced with foreclosures, evictions, domestic violence, and other legal problems. Lippman symbolizes a dedication to social justice embodied in Pace Law School’s clinics, centers, pro bono opportunities, and externship programs.

Check back next week as we highlight NYC and Westchester undergraduate and graduate Commencement ceremonies!

World AIDS Day Bash (NYC): Stop by the Student Union and join Keep a Child Alive (in partnership with STAND and Pace’s Stonewall Coalition) for an evening of activities and awareness.

Let’s Talk About Gender

More than two dozen professors from some of the most prestigious law schools in the country including Harvard, Columbia, and Chicago, will come to the Pace Law School to discuss the role of gender and sex in international law.

The Dean and Faculty of Pace Law School invite all students, faculty, and staff to “After Gender? Examining International Justice Enterprises,” a Pace Law Review symposium on November 12 in WP.  

The symposium will expand our understanding of the role of gender and sex in international law.  Traditionally, international law’s gender analysis has focused on women to the exclusion of other sexes.  More recent efforts, including those in international criminal law, the United Nations, and other international organizations, have attempted a broader understanding of gender. 

Janet Halley, Royall Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, will give the keynote address and more than two dozen panelists and commentators from law schools around the world will convene to address topics such as: the role of “women,” “men,” and transpeople/intersex people in gender equality; human rights beyond sex and gender; and prospects for international gender norms.
