Panel Discussion: Rhode Island and Public Corruption

Wednesday, October 04, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm  |  School of Law – Appellate Courtroom 283

Hosted by the RWU School of Justice Studies and the RWU School of Law

The “Crimetown” podcast series focused its first season on Providence, quickly shooting to No. 1 on the iTunes charts and further cementing Rhode Island’s reputation for crime and corruption. Is this reputation based more on perception than reality? Does it represent an outdated version of Rhode Island or is it still a matter of pressing public concern? What are the causes of public corruption in Rhode Island? What has been done about it and what remains to be done to address that problem? An expert panel will answer these questions and more.

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Borders, Bans, and New Americans: Immigration Law in the Trump Administration

Friday, October 13, 2017
8:00 am - 4:00 pm  |  RWU Law | Bristol Campus

A Roger Williams University School of Law Symposium-
Sponsored by the Roger Williams University Law Review

Borders, Bans, and New Americans: Immigration Law in the Trump Administration

8:00 AM Registration & Coffee
8:30 AM Greeting & Introduction
8:40 AM Keynote Address: Immigration and America's Cities
                by Hon. Jorge Elorza, Mayor, City of Providence

The Trump Administration has driven a renewed focus on immigration law and policy. Immigration was a signature issue for presidential candidate Trump during the 2016 campaign. Since his inauguration, immigration has rarely left the headlines. The original and revised Refugee Executive Orders pausing travel to the U.S. of refugees and nationals of six (originally seven) countries spurred litigation and political mobilization, including an order in June from the Supreme Court, which will revisit the case this October, coinciding with our conference. President Trump is also toughening border security, and has proposed substantial new expenditures for a border wall. In addition, another Executive Order has requested data on cities whose immigration enforcement policies diverge from the federal government’s approach, raising the specter of possible repercussions for federal funding. Moreover, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has changed interior enforcement policy, arresting noncitizens who were not an enforcement priority for the Obama administration. At the same time, President Trump has continued a key immigration initiative of the Obama administration, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, that offers a reprieve from removal to so-called “Dreamers”—noncitizens brought to the U.S. as children who lack a legal status but nevertheless have profound attachments to the United States.

Our conference will explore these issues with an array of distinguished speakers, including Stephen Legomsky, Washington University professor-emeritus and former Chief Counsel, Citizenship & Immigration Services, U.S. Dep't of Homeland Security; Peter Schuck, former Yale Law School professor; Muneer Ahmad, Deputy Dean for Experiential Education at Yale Law; Josh Blackman, South Texas College of Law; Hon. Jorge Elorza, Roger Williams Law Professor & Mayor of Providence, RI; Hon. Sheldon Whitehouse, U.S. Senate, RI (invited); Mark Noferi, Executive Office for Immigration Review, U.S. Dep’t of Justice (invited); RWU Law alum Luis Mancheno, Clinical Fellow, Cardozo Law School, Maryellen Fullerton, Brooklyn Law School; Lenni Benson, New York Law School; and our very own Deborah Gonzalez, Director of the Roger Williams Immigration Clinic. Papers from the conference will be published in the Roger Williams Law Review. We look forward to seeing you for a day of compelling debate!

DEFAMATION - THE PLAY

Thursday, November 02, 2017
3:30 pm - 6:00 pm  |  School of Law - Appellate Courtroom 283

3:30 PM Doors Open
4:00 PM Performance Begins

DEFAMATION is an old-fashioned courtroom drama. The premise is a civil suit: A South Side African-American woman sues a Jewish North Shore real estate developer for defamation. The legal issue is whether or not she was falsely accused of stealing his watch and causing her financial harm.  DEFAMATION explores the highly charged issues of race, religion, gender, class and the law with a twist: our law school audience is the jury. Through deliberations and post-show discussions, audiences engage in civil discourse that challenges pre-conceived notions. After the trial, the audience engages in a 15-minute deliberation led by the judge. The judge polls the audience twice - before the deliberation begins and at its end. The final vote ‘for the plaintiff’ or ‘for the defendant’ decides the outcome of the trial.

Co-Sponsored by the Office of the President

CLE Program: Management of Spinal and Extremities Radiology

Thursday, November 02, 2017
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm  |  Crowne Plaza, Warwick, Rhode Island

Management of Disc Pathologies and Other Spinal Abnormalities with Non-Surgical Pain Management with Strong Concentration on the Effects and Administration of Cortisone Injections. 

Presented by Roman Andrew Klufas, MD

This program will introduce the legal community to the appropriate use and interpretation of spinal and extremity imaging, particularly in the setting of accident trauma. We will review the role of various imaging modalities, including X-ray, CT, and MRI in assessing traumatic injury to the cervical, lumbar spine and large extremities. A main goal of the lecture is to assist the attorney in the challenging task of differentiating acute injury from pre-existing chronic disease. Particular emphasis is placed on deciphering commonly used (and sometimes misused) imaging terminology to facilitate understanding the radiologist’s report and integrating image interpretation with clinical data.

5:30 pm  – 6:00 pm    Registration
6:00 pm –  7:45 pm    Program
7:45 pm –  8:00 pm    Q&A
8:00 pm –  8:30 pm    Networking Reception

Crowne Plaza
801 Greenwich Avenue
Warwick, RI 02886

Two (2) complimentary Rhode Island M.C.L.E. credits with zero legal ethics credit are approved for this program.

CLE Program open to RWU Law students and the legal community.  Registration required by Monday, October 30, 2017 to RWU Law Office of Programs & Events at lawevents@rwu.edu.

Provided by Estner Injury Centers & Roger Williams University School of Law in partnership with Open MRI.
