The Crime of Complicity: The Bystander and the Holocaust
February 21 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm
If you are a bystander and witness a crime, should intervention to prevent that crime be a legal obligation? Or is moral responsibility enough?
Professor Amos Guiora, SJ Quinney School of Law at the University of Utah addresses these questions and the bystander-victim relationship from a deeply personal and legal perspective, focusing on the Holocaust and exploring cases in contemporary society.
Please join us for a special learning opportunity with Professor Amos Guiora on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at the offices of Husch Blackwell, 190 Carondelet Plaza in Clayton, 11:45 am – 1 pm as he shares the experiences of his parents and grandparents during the Holocaust and examines sexual assault cases at Vanderbilt and Stanford and other crimes where bystanders chose not to intervene. Guiora recommends that we must make the obligation to intervene the law and thus non-intervention a crime.
Seating is limited. Please respond no later than Friday, February 17 to Tasha Kaminsky at email@example.com or call 314-627-1333. Dessert and beverages will be served. Feel free to bring your lunch.
This program has been approved for 1 hour of CLE credit from the Missouri Bar. Thank you to Husch Blackwell, LLP for hosting this program. Professor Guiora’s visit is made possible by the Milton and Frieda Ferman Lecture Fund of the ADL.
