DEFENDING ACTIVISTS: BRINGING PROTEST INTO THE COURTROOM
Political protest has always carried with it the risk of arrest and prosecution. Martin Stolar, a criminal defense attorney and former president of the NYC chapter of the National Lawyers Guild, will speak about his 50-year career defending political activists. He will be joined by David Suker, a former client and NYC teacher who was arrested as part of Occupy protests.
Lunch will be served. This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff. Co-presented by the NYLS chapter of the National Lawyers Guild and the NYLS Criminal Law Association.
