Professor Hill Speaks at Black History Month Program on the Role of Courts in Our Democracy
On February 15, Professor John L. Hill participated in a panel discussion moderated by Marion Superior Court Judge David Dreyer on judicial independence – is it “we the people or we the courts”? The other panelist were Judge Sarah Evans Barker, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana. An afternoon program devoted to black history and the role of courts in our democracy allowed participants to learn, reflect on and discuss important judicial branch topics. The program was a partnership between the Indiana Supreme Court’s Legal History Lecture Series, Martin University and the American Bar Association. The two-part event included a panel discussion and a free continuing legal education seminar. The program, which took place at Martin University (2171 Avondale Place, Indianapolis) began with a welcome by American Bar Association Judicial Division Chair, Mike Witte, '82 and Martin University Acting President, Dr. Charlotte Westerhaus-Renfrow.
