Federalist Society Panel: The Future of Qualified Immunity

Wednesday, July 1, 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM

The doctrine of qualified immunity protects police officers from civil liability for violations of constitutional rights, unless the unlawfulness of the officers’ conduct was “clearly established” at the time of the violation. The doctrine has earned criticism from across the ideological spectrum and nationwide protests calling for increased police accountability have drawn attention to this issue. The Federalist Society will host a panel to discuss qualified immunity for police officers and what effects immunity has on race and policing in the U.S. Panelists will include Barbara Armacost ’89Tillman J. Breckenridge ’01, Breckenridge; Jason C. Johnson, Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund; Christopher J. Walker, Ohio State University Moritz College of Law; and moderator Philip D. Williamson ’13, Taft Stettinius & Hollister. Details and Registration.
