A Legal Observation Training to Support Local Movements

November 3, 2015 | Events

On Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m. in Room 351, Jill Humphries, of the National Lawyers Guild, and King Downing, of the Human Rights-Racial Justice Center, will conduct a legal observer training. Legal observers observe and record incidents and activities of law enforcement in relations to the demonstrators. Topics covered will include the role of legal observers in preserving constitutional rights, tactics of policing, protest, cognitive awareness, and implicit bias. All those interested in learning more about how to support local #BlackLivesMatter and other organizing are encouraged to attend. Dinner will be served.  Please RSVP for the training at to ensure there is enough food and materials.

This event is sponsored by the Moritz College of Law Office of Diversity and Inclusion, American Constitution Society, Black Law Student Association, Public Interest Law Foundation, Criminal Law Society, American Civil Liberties Union, and Outlaws.
