“UF gets Supreme Court visitor” (Sept. 19, 2012, The Independent Florida Alligator)

Dean Jerry announces Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ lecture at the UF Levin College of Law on Sept. 21, 2012.

From the article:
“The opportunity for a law student to interact with a Supreme Court justice is very special,” said Dean Robert Jerry. “To engage a justice is an opportunity to get insights into the workings of the highest court in our nation. This deepens our students’ education.”

They can accommodate about 500 people, Jerry said. With about 1,000 students enrolled at the law school, he said event attendance had to be rationed. Tickets to Thomas’ discussion will be distributed through the law school’s Office of Student Affairs.

Thomas did not accept payment to speak at UF, Jerry said.

“Blaming the Victim: Florida A&M argues hazing death was student’s fault, not school’s” (Sept. 12, 2012, The Daily)

This article discusses whether or not Robert Champion, the drum major beaten to death during a hazing scandal at Florida A&M University, is to blame for his own death.

From the article:
“If he’d said, ‘I’m not going to play this game, here’s my fancy A&M band uniform, I’m not going to take the field with you,’ that would be hard to do,” said Joseph W. Little, a law professor at the University of Florida. “I would expect the argument that because of the situation, this young man was under a lot of compulsion.”

Omri Y. Marian

Marian presented his paper, “Jurisdiction to Tax Corporations,” at the 2nd annual Critical Perspectives on Tax Policy workshop, hosted by the University of Washington School of Law.
