William H. Kniep Courtroom

This year’s Childress program focuses on contemporary issues relating to “Justice Systems Circa 2011: Public Courts, Military Commissions and Aggregate Processing.” Professor Judith Resnik of the Yale Law School will draw from themes presented in her recent book, co-authored with Dennis Curtis, Representing Justice: Invention, Controversy, and Rights in City-States and Democratic Courtrooms, in delivering the keynote presentation, “Invention and Challenges in Democratic Courts.” Following commentaries on Professor Resnik’s book by leading scholars, additional panels will present perspectives of prominent scholars, practitioners and jurists on “Military Commissions: From Ex Parte Quirin to Guantanamo Bay” and “Aggregate Processing: Wal-Mart, A.T. & T. and Aggregate Settlements and the 2009 ALI Principles.”
