IU McKinney to Commemorate the Constitution with Two Events


Students, faculty and staff at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law will commemorate the U.S. Constitution with two events this month.

First on September 10 is Professor Gerard Magliocca’s Faculty Book Talk on his recently published book, “American Founding Son: John Bingham and the Invention of the Fourteenth Amendment.” A leading antislavery lawyer and congressman from Ohio, Bingham wrote the most important part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees fundamental rights and equality to all Americans.

Professor Magliocca’s talk begins at 5 p.m. in the Wynne Courtroom, followed by a book signing and reception in the Atrium at 6 p.m.

The second event, slated for September 24, will offer a look at the major cases decided by the United States Supreme Court this year.

Professors Shawn Boyne, Jennifer Drobac, George Edwards, David Orentlicher, and Michael Pitts will look at criminal law, voting rights, same-sex marriage, and international human rights and examine how the high court’s decisions impacted these various areas of law. The lecture begins at 4:30 p.m. in the Wynne Courtroom, with a reception following at 6 p.m. in the Atrium.
