Lawyers Without Rights

Some 70 years after its horrors unfolded, the Holocaust still has stories to reveal and lessons to share.

The highly acclaimed international exhibit, “Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany under the Third Reich,” will be visiting Rhode Island throughout August and September, providing a portrait of the fate of Jewish lawyers in Germany — stories that speak to how the Nazis purged Jewish lawyers as one of the early steps in attacking the rule of law in their country.

The showing – which will be installed at Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol during August, and the U.S. District Court in Providence during September – is co-sponsored by the two organizations, in conjunction with the American Bar Association and the Bundersrechtsanwaltkammer, the German Federal Bar. The exhibit has been shown in dozens of cities in the U.S., Germany and throughout the world.

The FCC is an independent administrative agency that is best known for ensuring universal access to communications, overseeing the broadcast, cable, wireless and broadband industries, and allocating the public airwaves (spectrum).  The FCC also plays a lesser known but equally critical role as a consumer protection agency.  Ms. Sohn will discuss the FCC’s authority to protect consumers from, among others, unwanted robocalls, privacy violations & anti-competitive behavior, and how it dovetails with other agencies’ authorities.

Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University. In 1997, President Clinton appointed her to serve as a member of his Advisory Committee on the Public Interest Obligations of Digital Television Broadcasters.  The Electronic Frontier Foundation gave Ms. Sohn one of its Internet “Pioneer Awards” in 2006. In 2011, the Nonprofit Times named her one of its “Power & Influence Top 50” non-profit executives. Ms. Sohn holds a B.S. in Broadcasting and Film, Summa Cum Laude, from the Boston University College of Communication and a J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

Cybersecurity + Law Enforcement: The Cutting Edge Symposium

Friday, October 16, 2015
12:00 am - 12:00 am  |  RWU Law | Bristol, Rhode Island

RWU Law Cybersecurity           
Cybersecurity, encryption, and government surveillance are daily challenges for public officials, corporations, and lawyers. On Friday, October 16, the Roger Williams University School of Law will present Cybersecurity and Law Enforcement: The Cutting Edge, featuring Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Representative Jim Langevin, U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, the Federal Trade Commission's Jessica Rich, Google's David Lieber, and prominent privacy lawyer Linn Foster Freedman.  Key players in cyberlaw's future, along with other experts from government, academia, and the private sector, will highlight the risks and propose solutions for these situations:

-- The massive hack at the federal Office of Personnel Management has exposed sensitive personal information of over 21 million public employees and others involved in security clearances;

-- Ongoing and escalating cyber intrusions resulting in daily data breaches  of well-known companies such as Target and Anthem have worried consumers, angered regulators, and attracted the plaintiffs' bar;

-- Litigation and enforcement actions and the interplay between private industry and the government in sharing information about cyber intrusions;

-- Edward Snowden's disclosures about the National Security Agency have ignited a national debate about the balance between privacy and national security;

-- Apple and other firms have embraced end-to-end encryption to keep data secure, triggering law enforcement concerns about "going dark" in the battle against cybercriminals.

Join the conversation at RWU Law on October 16 about cyberlaw's present and future impact!

Beyond Marriage Equality Symposium

Friday, October 30, 2015
12:30 pm - 5:00 pm  |  RWU Law | Bristol, Rhode Island

RWU Law Beyond Marriage Equality Symposium

Keynote Speaker: Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI)

Now that the issue of marriage equality has been definitively settled, not only in Rhode Island but nationwide, some believe that the fight for LGBTQ equality rights has been fought and won.  However, there remain several legal challenges facing the LGBTQ community, including challenges in the areas of family law, trusts and estates law, housing, employment, education and other civil rights discrimination, and the rights of transgender individuals.

Local practitioners and legal scholars will convene to examine these challenges from a Rhode Island and a federal perspective, and demonstrate that the fight for basic legal protections to prevent discrimination against LGBTQ individuals is far from over.  Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who recently co-sponsored and introduced a federal LGBT rights bill (the “Equality Act”) that would explicitly ban anti-LGBT discrimination in all areas of civil rights law, will deliver the symposium’s keynote address.
