Contemporary Lessons on Judging and Justice from the Holocaust
October 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Thursday, October 22, 12:00 P.M. PT
Join us for a program exploring the role of judges and the courts during the Holocaust and the relevance that experience has for judges today.
Judges were among those inside Germany who might have effectively challenged Hitler’s authority, the legitimacy of the Nazi regime, the hundreds of laws that restricted political freedoms and civil rights, and the guarantees of property and security. And yet the overwhelming majority did not.
What lessons does that experience provide for judges and courts today?
Open to all, and of particular interest to judges, the program will consider:
- key historical context and lessons
- current relevance for judges
BJI Executive Director Judge Jeremy Fogel will be joined by Dr. Will Meinecke of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to discuss.
CLE credit will be offered.
