Law Students to Discuss “Stand Your Ground” Law & Martin Case

The UALR Bowen School of Law Chapter of the National Black Law Students Association (BSLA) will sponsor a lunch time round table event on Monday, April 23, from noon – 1:30 p.m. in the Friday Courtroom on the law school campus at 1201 McMath Avenue in downtown Little Rock.

The goal of the event is to increase awareness surrounding the “Stand Your Ground” laws as written, and the circumstances surrounding the use of deadly force in self-defense, and the defense of others.

Adoja Aiyetoro, Esq., Professor of Law and Director of the UALR Institute of Race and Ethnicity will serve as moderator. Professor Aiyetoro has been a professor of law at the Bowen School of Law since 2004, and has also served as Director of Administration of the ACLU’s Prison Project.

Scheduled to appear on our panel are:

Judge Marion Humphrey
Dean Paula Casey (Interim Dean of UALR – Law)
Dean Felicia Epps
Attorney Michael Johnson
Attorney Gene McKissic
Attorney Jimmy Morris, Jr.

The BSLA says it hopes to have not only a great turnout; but, more importantly, an intelligent conversation surrounding the intricacies of the issues involved.
