Dean Erwin Chemerinsky will kick off the Distinguished Speakers Series: Leaders in Action on Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in Redondo Beach.
The series – a brand-new program – will explore the poignant moral and ethical issues that confront individuals in the 21st Century.
Each speaker is an accomplished and well-known and well-respected authority in his field. Rarely does the South Bay community get access to speakers of this caliber.
Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California, Irvine, Law School, will discuss “The New Technology and the Constitution.” A magnetic speaker, he will focus on First Amendment rights when he answers the question, “Can texting, Facebook and Twitter be used against YOU in court?
The other two speakers are:
- Arthur Gross-Schaefer on March 13 at 7:30 p.m. Both a rabbi and an attorney, the Loyola Marymount law professor will talk about “Ethical Decision-making in the 21st Century – in Our Public Lives, in Our Workplace and in Our Personal Lives.”
- Elliot N. Dorff on April 16 at 7:30 p.m. The rector of American Jewish University and a philosophy professor, he will cover “Matters of Life and Death – a Moral Choice“ – a look at the impact of technology and medicine in the 21st Century.
