September 28th Author talk: Courting Justice: 10 NJ Cases that shook the nation

Please join us on September 28th from noon to 1 p.m. in the Level 2 Reading Room to hear from professor emeritus Paul Tractenberg for the presentation on Courting Justice: 10 New Jersey Cases that Shook the Nation.

Tractenberg edited the book of the same name as the presentation.  The book tells of ten of the court’s landmark decisions between 1960 and 2011, chosen to illustrate the court’s extensive involvement in major public issues, and to assess its impact. You will find in the book that each case chapter is authored by a distinguished academic or professional expert, several of whom were deeply involved in the cases litigation, enabling them to provide special insights.

Many of the cases, like Karen Ann Quinlan and Baby M, are so widely known that they have become part of the national conversation about law and policy.

All are welcome! RSVP is appreciated. Please contact: Cindy Warrick at mailto:cwarrick@njstatelib.orgor 609-278-2640 ext. 172 to RSVP
