2019-2020 Howard Lichtenstein Distinguished Professorship in Legal Ethics Lecture: Delivered by Susan Bandes

The Monroe H. Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics presents the 2019-2020 Howard Lichtenstein Distinguished Professorship in Legal Ethics Lecture, “Is Emotion the Enemy of Reason? The Role of Emotion in the Legal System” delivered by Susan Bandes, Centennial Professor of Law Emeritus, DePaul University College of Law. Susan Bandes is widely known as a scholar in the areas of federal jurisdiction, criminal procedure and civil rights, and more recently, as a pioneer in the emerging study of the role of emotion in law. Her legal career began in 1976 at the Illinois Office of the State Appellate Defender. In 1980, she became staff counsel for the Illinois A.C.L.U., where she litigated a broad spectrum of civil rights cases, and helped draft and secure passage of the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. She joined the DePaul faculty in 1984.  Her book on the role of emotion in law, The Passions of Law, was published by NYU Press in January 2000, and released in paperback in 2001. 

 

The Monroe H. Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics, founded in honor of one of the profession’s most influential legal scholars, seeks to focus the attention of law students, scholars, judges and practitioners on today’s most significant issues for the legal profession.

The Freedman Institute sponsors programs and conferences for scholarly inquiry and brings together practitioners, judges and scholars to examine critical aspects of the delivery of legal services.

It also trains law students to take responsibility for serving others, and it provides practical experiences to do so.

Monroe Freedman schooled generations of law students and implored colleagues to “make a difference.” The Freedman Institute seeks to enhance his legacy.
