On Saturday, January 6, Professor Caroline Osborne participated as a panelist at a program titled "Defending Democracy in the Law School." The panel was moderated by Professor John Linarelli of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

From the program:

The focus on defending democracy has traditionally been at the level of the state or political community. This panel turns the focus to democracy in organizations, and particularly to democratic ideals that may govern the American law school. Does democratic participation have a role in the governance of the law school? How does faculty governance work in a setting in which faculty contracts are differentiated and unequal? Is the focus now managerialist, in which university control and budgets play the primary role? Finally, the panel explores how law schools serve the public interest in a quasi-constitutional function in a democracy.
