A pre-recorded video replay of the June 2022 live webcast seminar, The Inaugural Civil Rights Law Institute at Monticello.


Topics covered:

  • Timely topics within the complex field of civil rights and police misconduct
  • Historical perspectives and legal precedents regarding the nature and purpose of policing
  • Speakers from UVA, VCU, and Liberty discuss police power on university campuses
  • The law of excessive force and legal remedies – learn to make winning arguments as they relate to the disproportionate impact of people of color
  • Legal and practical ramifications of new legislation designed to curtail police abuses

Policing is one of the most important civil rights issues facing our Commonwealth and nation today. It is crucial for lawyers to understand sensitive and complex topics such as police power on university campuses, litigating police misconduct cases, the law of excessive force, and legislation curtailing police abuses. Recognizing historical perspectives and staying up to date in this field are also important for lawyers handling civil rights and police misconduct cases.

To shed light on these issues, the Virginia Law Foundation partnered with The Virginia Bar Association, The Old Dominion Bar Association, and founding members from the Virginia State Bar's Diversity Conference to present the Inaugural Civil Rights Law Institute at Monticello. This first-of-its-kind institute focused on what we're calling the Law of Order and explored police misconduct and civil rights from legal and societal perspectives.

A world-class group of experts from various fields reviewed the subtleties of the laws surrounding civil rights and the latest developments in this field. Our spectacular group of panelists and moderators included Roger Gregory, Chief Judge of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals; University of Virginia School of Law Dean Risa Goluboff; and Professor of Law at the University of South Carolina Seth W. Stoughton, who was a key witness in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd.

These participants were joined by leading attorneys and scholars, key players in law enforcement and government, college administrators, journalists, historians, directors of civil rights organizations, and more.
