Duke Law students, faculty and staff are invited to join Jeffrey L. Fisher, Professor of Law and Co-Director, Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Stanford Law School for a moot court in Heien v. North Carolina. A leading authority on Supreme Court practice and nationally recognized expert on criminal procedure, Jeffrey L. Fisher's work at Stanford Law revolves around handling cases in the U.S. Supreme Court. He has argued 23 cases in the Court, on issues ranging from criminal justice to maritime law to telecommunications law. The case poses the issue whether a police officer's mistake of law (rather than of fact) can supply the individualized suspicion necessary to justify a traffic stop. This event is open to the Duke community only. Sponsored by the Program in Public Law. For more information, contact Sarah Holsapple at email@example.com. Lunch will be served.
