peter lederer August 10, 2021

This week began with the very sad news that Peter Lederer died of a heart attack (see John Flood). Peter was a long standing friend to the University of Miami School of Law, and during the pandemic we got to see him even during the periods when he wasn’t actually in Miami, thanks to zoom.
He contributed to the Law School in so many ways, as a member of our visiting committee, as a participant in LWOW, as a willing speaker in classes (he spoke about cross-border practice of law in one of my classes and talked about structuring multinational business firms to avoid partnership liability a number of times in my BA class). In the cross-border practice class (which I don’t currently teach) he was one of a number of very successful speakers who described the evolution of their lives and careers in terms of chance. But like others I have known he had an adventurous spirit and put himself in a position to benefit from opportunities. He had an endlessly inquiring mind and was a warm, kind and lovely person. I will miss him.

Posted by Bradley in : events, um , add a comment

On 20-21 September there’s what promises to be a fascinating and important symposium, open to all, on petty offenses and social justice at the Donna Shalala Student Center at UM.  You can sign up here.

The event will explore the use of litigation; human rights advocacy at international, regional, national, and local levels; and creative campaigning. It will draw on work from Ghana, Guinea, Guyana, Hungary, India, Israel, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and the United States. A special symposium issue of the University of Miami Law Review and the University of Miami Race and Social Justice Law Review will further capture lessons and reflections.

Faculty from Miami Law who work at the intersection of criminal law and human rights, including Caroline Bettinger-LópezDonna Coker, Tamar Ezer, and Stephen Schnably, who was co-counsel on the landmark Pottinger v. City of Miami case, will be featured. Additionally, the conference brings together key experts from the field, including Maria Teresa Manuela with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and special rapporteur on Policing and Prisons in Africa; Anneke Meerkotter, the litigation director of the Southern Africa Litigation Centre; Rob Robinson, a housing rights advocate with the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative and formerly homeless himself in Miami and New York; and Tracy Robinson, the deputy dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of the West Indies and former president of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
