    CUNY Law Review Spring Symposium

    Democracy at your fingertips: Your voice, your vote, make it count!

    This year CUNY Law Review will examine the interplay between voter rights, technology, and democracy, specifically on the issues of gerrymandering, the 2020 Census, and the upcoming election. NYDLCer John Owens Jr. will be on the panel "Voter Suppression & Language Access at the Ballot," which will discuss barriers to voting such as long lines, voter ID laws, broken voting machines, and disenfranchisement of formerly incarcerated persons, and proposals such as ranked choice and instant run-off voting. This is a day long event with panels on the 2020 census and voter technology as well, and will feature NY State Attorney General and friend of NYDLC Letitia James.

    Impeachment CLE Webinar

    On December 3rd, NYDLC hosted an Impeachment CLE at Stroock &Stroock. Panelists included Nick Akerman (Former Watergate Prosecutor and Partner, Dorsey & Whitney LLP), Richard Emery (Founding Partner, Emery Celli, Brinckerhoff & Abady LLP), Jerry H. Goldfeder (Special Counsel, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP) and Rebecca Roiphe (Professor of Law, New York Law School) and was moderated by Cynthia Kouril (Principal at Kouril Law Office, P.C.).

    The CLE discussed what constitutes a "high crime and misdemeanor," the impeachment cases for Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and Alcee Hastings, a federal judge who was impeached and removed for bribery and went on to become a US House Representative.

    The CLE then went on to discuss whether what Trump admits to doing constitutes a high crime and misdemeanor. Interestingly, neither bribery or high crimes and misdemeanors are clearly defined in the Constitution, and thus determinations for whether they have been committed are made on a purely political basis. The House and Senate may not completely agree, and this will have implications for precedent and future impeachment hearings."
