Professors speak at Phoenix community event
Three Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law professors have been selected to speak in ASU President Michael Crow's 2009-2010 Community Enrichment Programs.
The programs are premier educational events that connect the Greater Phoenix community to ASU's visionary scholars and ideas through multi-week courses, single lectures and campus tours.
"What began as a grassroots engagement effort in 1998 has flourished into a successful program that connects more than 500 community members each year with the vision and intellectual power of a New American University," according to a brochure on the programs.
Catherine O'Grady, associate dean of the College of Law, spoke Nov. 9, 2009, on "Current cases in the U.S. Supreme Court: A close look at current Arizona and Arizona-related cases involving several different areas of the law."
Michael J. Saks, Regents' Professor of law and psychology, will speak at 6:30 p.m., Feb. 16, at the Carefree Resort and Villas in Carefree, on "The lack of science in U.S. forensic science," including the major problems revealed in a recent national report and the overhaul required to fix them. Cost is $20 per person.
Paul Bender, professor and dean emeritus, will teach a four-part course, "Understanding the U.S. Supreme Court as seen through four recent cases," taking a critical look at four cases that illustrate the jurisprudence of the U.S. Supreme Court and its individual Justices. The course will take place from 7-9 p.m., Feb. 18-March 11, at Troon North Golf Club. Cost is $140 per person.
