October 24, 2005
Issues facing the judiciary, including the nomination process, accountability, and violence against judges are the focus of a symposium, "The Madness in the Shadows of Modern Life: Judicial Security and Politics in the 21st Century," on November 9, 2005.
The symposium will be held in Saxbe Auditorium at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, 55 W. 12th Avenue and at the college's Barrister Club, 25 West 11th Avenue.
Conference presenters will examine issues that impact judges and discuss how to advance a secure, independent judiciary in light of modern pressures. Panelists will analyze courtroom security taking into account recent violence in courtrooms, political pressures facing judges and judicial nominees, and the recent and current controversies surrounding judicial nominations, including those of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts and Supreme Court Justice nominee Harriet Miers.
Judges, lawyers, students, professors, and all interested parties are invited to attend the symposium. For more information, including registration, speakers, and schedule, see the Ohio State Law Journal web site or call (614) 292-6829.
