In celebration of 25 years of American Legal Studies at Birmingham City University, the Centre for American Legal Studies, in conjunction with the Birmingham Law Society, invites you to the inaugural lecture of the Judge Joseph A. Greenaway Jr. Lecture Series on Law and Justice.
Judge Joseph A. Greenaway, Jr. received his commission from President Obama as the sixty-second jurist appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on February 12, 2010. Judge Greenaway was sworn in on February 24, 2010. He sits in Newark, New Jersey. Judge Greenaway earned his B.A. in history from Columbia College in 1978 and graduated from Harvard Law School in 1981. Judge Greenaway has long supported the Centre for American Legal Studies at Birmingham City University, this includes hosting students participating in BCU’s American Legal Practice module, and sitting on the Editorial Board of the British Journal of American Legal Studies.
Judge Greenaway will deliver the opening address, followed by panel papers on the broad theme of Global Constitutional Dialogue. The provisional title of Judge Greenway’s address is ‘Speak at Your Peril: Miranda and the Right to Silence.’
This event will be of particular interest to those with interests in constitutional law; comparative law; criminal procedure; public law; legal education; and American studies.
Bookings can be made on Eventbrite.
