Prof. Stefan Krieger Presents at European Network for Clinical Legal Education and Int’l Journal of Clinical Legal Education Conference
Stefan Krieger, the Richard J. Cardali Distinguished Professor of Trial Advocacy, presented the paper “Oral History as a Method for Advancing Justice and Educating for a Just Society” on July 4 at the 2019 European Network for Clinical Legal Education and International Journal of Clinical Legal Education Conference in Bratislava, Slovakia.
In the paper, Professor Krieger described the oral history study he is conducting with colleagues in the Hofstra University Sociology Department and School of Communications about the 150 Secatogue housing discrimination case his Law Reform Advocacy Clinic litigated for nearly a decade.
Specifically, he addressed the logistical and ethical issues encountered in conducting such a study and the ways that such studies can be used to assist other civil rights lawyers and community activists.
