MORE about the event:
MORE about the book:
"Comprehensive and remarkably lucid"—Publishers Weekly
"A furious indictment of the Supreme Court as an accessory to the
anti-democratic machinations of Gilded Age elites."—Kirkus Reviews
"One of the saddest episodes in American history has been inadequately explored
and poorly understood—until now. Lawrence Goldstone's brilliantly written book,
Inherently Unequal, traces the post-Reconstruction Supreme Court's slow
strangulation of equal rights for African-Americans. It will be a shock to many
that the judicial branch, viewed in the modern context as the premier defender
of civil rights, was primarily responsible for the nation's descent into a deep,
racist inequality that ruined the lives of millions for a century. As Goldstone
shows us, Lincoln's great legacy was cynically dismantled by the officeholders
best positioned to protect it."—Larry Sabato

Clifford Law Offices is sponsoring a two-hour free continuing legal education webinar entitled "Ethical Applications of the New Illinois Rules of Evidence." This program has been approved for 2 hours of professional responsibility credit. Our panelists include, , Justice of the Second District Illinois Appellate Court, Chair of the Judicial Inquiry Board and Chair of the Special Supreme Court Committee on Illinois Evidence, , Evidence Professor at DePaul University College of Law for more than 25 years, and , They will address the rules of evidence in the context of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The program will explore when the offering of false evidence triggers the rules of professional conduct such as Rule 3.3, when discussing the case with others puts Rule 4.1 into play, how the lawyer must deal with and preserve confidential, privileged and work product protections when offering evidence, and how the gathering of evidence on an informal basis can violate Rule 4.4. The speakers will explore these issues through various hypotheticals with interactivity from a live audience as well as from those participating on the web.
For further information, please call 312-899-9090.
