About the Event
The Connecticut Bar Foundation established a symposium series in memory of U.S. District Court Judge Mark R. Kravitz in 2012. Judge Kravitz was an extraordinary lawyer and judge and his passing in 2012 was a great loss to the judiciary and bar. The Foundation has established a board designated endowment to fund ongoing symposia to celebrate his legacy. The Kravitz Family and Judge Kravitz, prior to his death, gave this symposium series their support. Scroll down to learn more information about past and upcoming events in this series.
Fourth Hon. Mark R. Kravitz Symposium "The Arc of the Rule of Law" NEW HAVEN LAWN CLUB, 193 WHITNEY AVENUE, NEW HAVEN, CT THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2021, 8:30 A.M - 1:00 P.M.
Although the Rule of Law has been discussed over the past year in numerous settings and from varying perspectives, there has been little mention of the decade in our Nation’s history when the Rule of Law definitively changed. Between the 1850s, when the Fugitive Slave Act was vigorously enforced, and the 1860s, when the Reconstruction Amendments ended slavery, defined citizenship, and guaranteed voting rights, the Rule of Law was dramatically transformed. Yet, the effectiveness of that transformation continues to be debated. What does it take to change the Rule of Law?
Please join our moderator and presenters for a conversation about our Nation’s earlier experience in changing the Rule of Law, how it fell short and possible conclusions for our consideration today. Questions will be encouraged. Additional information will be provided soon.
This event will only be presented in-person.
