150 University Ave., Akron, OH 44325
Program: 1 – 4:45 p.m. (Room 151)
Reception: 4:45 - 6 p.m. (Atrium)
The University of Akron School of Law proudly hosts a symposium celebrating the release of the book, Justice and Legal Change on the Shores of Lake Erie: A History of the Northern District of Ohio (Ohio Univ. Press 2012) that explores the many ways that the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio has affected the development of American law and history.
The book offers a “greatest hits” of cases from the Northern District, including the Kent State shootings, school desegregation, conscientious objection, abortion, and pollution on the Cuyahoga River. Beginning with the court’s creation in 1855, the book traces cases such as fugitive slave rescues, political corruption, the Eugene Debs prosecution, to the immigration of alleged Nazi war criminal John Demyanjuk. This program provides the backstory on the big cases that came before the court and confirms the significant role played by district courts in the history of the United States.
