Guns in the Courts

Thursday, September 22, 2016 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3037Duke Law Events

Few subjects inspire more debate than guns. Do gun laws work? Are restrictions on gun ownership constitutional? Should gun companies be held responsible when criminals misuse their products? The Program in Public Law welcomes Alla Lefkowitz '10, Staff Attorney at Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, to discuss how these issues are addressed in the courts. The talk will address recent developments in Second Amendment law, and provide an introduction to civil lawsuits brought by victims of gun violence against gun manufacturers and sellers. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by Program in Public Law. For more information, please contact Jean Jentilet at jean.jentilet@law.duke.edu.
