On September 20, 2013, please join us for a symposium on the complex and shifting nature of citizenship rights in a post 9/11 world. How have the post 9/11 legal and policy battles affected the legal rights of citizens and non–citizens? How can we best understand the tensions between the state’s duty to protect its citizens and its desire to protect individual rights and liberties? Has the vigilance about terrorism weakened the protections associated with citizenship, particularly with respect to ethnic and religious minorities?
On April 17, 2012, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and former New York Court of Appeals Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye delivered the Robert L. Levine Distinguished Lecture. The two former judges discussed, among other topics, the oft-criticized judicial election process in New York, its implications for the independence of the judiciary, and ways to modify the process to ensure impartial jurisprudence. The lecture took place in McNally Amphitheatre. The Law Review will publish a transcript of the lecture in Volume 81.
