A Look at Professor Cedric Merlin Powell: Bridging the Gap Between the Brandeis School of Law and the Louisville Community

Thu, 02/13/2014 - 14:35
piBy Rebecca Sears/i/p pThe Brandeis School of Law recognizes the value of community engagement for both faculty and students. Faculty members like Professor Cedric Merlin Powell are setting this example by giving back to the community. Professor Powell has taught at Brandeis for what will be twenty-one years in August. In regards to public service, he believes the school truly lives out the spirit of Justice Brandeis through their commitment to serving the community./p p“We embody Justice Brandeis’s spirit by encouraging students to be the public lawyer he believed in. We also are one of the few law schools which require service to graduate. This is a great motivator for students to become involved,” Powell said. “Being connected to the local community is a win-win situation for law students. Their training and public interest work will ultimately make them better lawyers.”/p pWhile Professor Powell encourages student engagement, he is strongly connected to the Louisville community as well. For the past ten years, Powell has served on the TARC board and is currently the board’s chair. He says, “Leadership Louisville is how I got started with TARC. They’ve been around for 25-30 years and allow individuals to see all of the community, to choose where they would like to get involved. It is a great program.” Powell attends monthly meetings and also dedicates his time to special TARC projects. In his ten years, he has helped the board provide efficient, economical, and environment friendly transportation to the city. When discussing his work with TARC, Powell expressed “I am most proud of our team effort. Every façade of TARC is a team: from the mechanical to implementation to planning to drivers, we are working with the same goals in mind.” Between teaching at the law school and dedicating his time to TARC, Professor Powell is bridging the gap between the local community and the law school. He is, without a doubt, continuing the long-standing tradition of public service at the school. /p pWhen asked his favorite thing about his work in the community, he enthusiastically responded: “When we come up with something to better public transportation. For instance, when we replace old buses with new ones or introduce a new route to the public.” Recently, TARC introduced a new express route connecting downtown Louisville to Sellersburg, Indiana. The goal is to develop a link between Ivy Tech College and downtown Louisville. TARC hopes to encourage education for those who may be working in the Louisville area by providing viable transportation options. In working with TARC, Professor Powell is now even working to create state connections as well. /p pProfessor Cedric Merlin Powell is most certainly bridging the gap between the local community and law school. His work with TARC will have lasting impacts as he continues to improve the city’s public transportation system. Recently, the Louisville Bar Association recognized his service to the community with the Trail Blazer Award and the YMCA acknowledged his work in their youth achievers program. With his example, students will continue striving to be the public service lawyer Justice Brandeis encouraged and envisioned./p

UofL law school to unveil photos from Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1967 visit

Tue, 02/11/2014 - 17:25
img src=/sites/www.law.louisville.edu/files/2011.159.0005.jpg style=margin-bottom: 20px / p After years of digging through photographic archives, the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law is ready to unveil photos taken nearly 50 years ago when Martin Luther King Jr. spoke in the school’s Allen Court Room. /pa href=http://wfpl.org/post/university-louisville-unveil-never-seen-martin-luther-king-jr-photos target=_blank /apa href=http://wfpl.org/post/university-louisville-unveil-never-seen-martin-luther-king-jr-photos target=_blank “We found photos that we didn’t even know existed,” said Robin Harris,/a who chairs the law school’s diversity committee and is a professor of legal bibliography. “Two of the photos show Mrs. King and another shows a close up of Dr. King—which is fairly rare.” /p p A dozen photos will be shown at a href=/node/13217a free, public event Feb. 28/a. The program begins at 5:30 p.m. and is part of the law school’s a href=/node/13217 target=_blankGraduates of Color reunion/a and celebration of Black History Month. /p p Law school Dean Susan Duncan said the photos of King standing at a podium in the courtroom gave her chills. /p p “It’s gratifying to know that King spoke here,” said Duncan. “Because—even 50 years ago—this university was a trailblazer in the areas of diversity and inclusiveness.” /p p Harris said the project was a collaborative effort between the law school and UofL a href=https://exchange.louisville.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=iizcuefmtU6WL2k5XI9hoL0iqIbe-tAIdsXapIWDVEruEi7cnFqhmr2sYqhiQgYql3ftJiCWj9A.amp;URL=http%3a%2f%2flouisville.edu%2flibrary%2farchives%2f target=_blankArchives and Special Collections/a. Five of the photos will be permanently displayed in the courtroom’s entrance along with a bronze plaque that commemorates King’s visit. /p p King spoke at the school March 30, 1967, after law student Steve Porter invited him. Porter—now a graduate of the law school—will speak at the February event along with fellow UofL alumnus Andrew Williams and recently retired law professor David Leibson. Porter and Leibson were in the courtroom during King’s visit and Williams was one of dozens of students who squeezed around the courtroom’s windows hoping to glimpse the civil rights leader. /p p All three will share their thoughts and memories about King’s visit during the event. /p

Three Brandeis Faculty Members Give Major Impact Presentations at National Conferences

Tue, 02/11/2014 - 10:44
piBrown v. Board of Education, /ithe environment, and college students with disabilities. These are the three topics for presentations by Brandeis faculty at national conferences in February.  /pbTony Arnold the Keynote Speaker at University of Missouri School of Law Symposium on Environmental Law/b/p pIn a symposium organized around the scholarship of Boehl Professor Arnold, he will give the keynote address at a February 14 symposium on a href=http://law.missouri.edu/faculty/symposium/jesl2014/brochure.pdfEnvironmental Law 4.0: Adaptive and Resilient/a. He was invited to do so based on the University of Missouri Journal of Environmental and Sustainability Law organizers who found his work to be intriguing and compelling.  /ppEnvironmental law in the United States has been continually evolving since the quot;first generationquot; of commandand- control regulatory statutes in the 1970s to the emerging fourth generation. This new generation of environmental law is under pressure to develop a framework that is more adaptive and resilient. Yet the institutional arrangements to protect the environment and manage natural resources generally have been unimodal (quot;one-sizefits- allquot;) and fragmented, resulting in a current framework that is ill-suited for today's pressing environmental issues./pThis symposium explores the prospects for the fourth generation of environmental law. How can a better understanding of resilience science and our relationship to environmental and natural resource challenges serve as a catalyst to transform environmental law to become more adaptive? Will environmental law develop a framework that is more integrated and multimodal? What are the theoretical and practical hurdles that must be overcome as we enter into the next generation of environmental law? These and other critical questions will be examined through a variety of perspectives, including ecological science, law and economics, environmental justice, indigenous peoples, international law and administrative law./pnbsp;/pbCedric Merlin Powell to Serve as Plenary Session Speaker at Washburn University Center for Law and Government/b/pnbsp;/pProfessor Powell has been recognized for his work on critical race theory and invited to speak on this topic on February 27. a href=http://washburnlaw.edu/practicalexperience/government/center/programs/brownat60/speakers.html#powellThe symposium explores in a critical manner what the iBrown v. Board of Education/i decision/a has meant and what it will continue to mean looking forward. On February 25, the Louisville Bar Association will recognize Professor Powell for his scholarship and leadership on race issues when it presents him with the annual Trailblazer Award during the Black History Month event./p In addition to the LBA award, Cedric also won the 2014 Chestnut Street YMCA Adult Black Achievers award. This is the 35th year of the program. Distinguished professionals from a number of fields are selected as role models for youth achievers. Adult achievers are expected to give 40 hours of service to the youth achievers program. Cedric was selected by Vice Provost Mordean Taylor-Archer to represent the University of Louisville./pnbsp;/ppbLaura Rothstein to serve as Stetson Conference of Higher Education Law and Policy Honorary Chair/b/p Must universities allow emotional support animals in the library? Can veterans with disabilities returning to college receive accommodations when the military does not provide documentation of the disability in a timely fashion? Are sororities required to make their houses accessible for wheelchairs even though they are private clubs? What policies should universities have in place to ensure that baby boomer faculty members are given fair treatment if their physical or mental health becomes frail? Are universities risking the cancellation of excellent programs for grade school and high school students because of new and burdensome policies put in place in reaction to the Jerry Sandusky scandal?/p p class=p2These are only a few of the issues that will be addressed by Laura Rothstein, Professor of Law and Distinguished University Scholar. In addition to serving as a panelist or speaker at four different sessions at the February 2014, 35th Annual National Conference on Higher Education Law and Policy sponsored by Stetson University Law School, she will serve this year as Honorary Chair of the conference. This honor reflects her longstanding commitment to increasing the understanding of higher education legal issues. In 2011 she was honored by the conference with the William A. Kaplin Award for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy.    /p
