UCLA dean to lecture at IU Maurer on the future of public legal education

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A distinguished legal scholar and expert on educational policy will deliver the Jerome Hall Lecture at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law on March 21.

Rachel Moran, dean and Michael J. Connell Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California Los Angeles School of Law, will talk about “Clark Kerr and Me: The Future of the Public Law School.”

Kerr rose to national prominence after World War II as the visionary leader who ensured that the University of California would become a world-class system of public higher education. Kerr's legacy has come under pressure as state funding for colleges and universities has been reduced, a trend that is occurring in other states, including Indiana.

Moran previously was a professor at UC Berkeley School of Law and was a founding faculty member of the UC Irvine School of Law. She is the first Latina dean of a top 20 United States law school and is a former president of the Association of American Law Schools.

Her lecture begins at noon in the Maurer law school’s Moot Court room, 211 S. Indiana Ave., Bloomington. It is free and open to the public.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
