Rene Valladares (Federal Public Defender) and a group of panelists will discuss what the “Rule of Law” means in today’s multicultural society.
In a growing number of cases in state and federal courts all across the country, parties are raising “the cultural defense” – invoking the customs and traditions of a diversity of cultural backgrounds to explain their actions. Even when these issues are not raised per se, culture plays a role in many cases – both civil and criminal.
Please join us for this engaging presentation.
