    Faculty Colloquium - Shaun Ossei-Owusu

    Book: The People’s Champ: Legal Aid from Slavery to Mass Incarceration Chapter 8: Social Engineers on a Grand Scale?: Federally-Funded Legal Aid and the Civil Rights Movement

    Chapter 8, which I’ve circulated, focuses on the legislatively created and executive endorsed War on Poverty. I zoom in on the Legal Services Program (LSP), which was part of this initiative. LSP pumped over 2,000 attorneys and millions of dollars into poor communities. I describe how federal dollars earmarked for poverty were deployed by advocates to advance racial justice agendas—specifically the enforcement of newly-minted civil rights statutes (e.g., the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Fair Housing Act) and the leveraging of Warren Court interpretations of previously dormant statutory and constitutional provisions (e.g., Section 1983, the Equal Protection Clause). This story differs from traditional civil rights narratives that focus on mainstream organizations (e.g., NAACP and the ACLU) to the neglect of federally funded legal services and poverty law scholarship that is sometimes less specific about the racial implications of public interest lawyering during this period.

    Spring 2024 1L Public Speaking Workshop

    By this point in law school you’ve learned the foundations of black letter law. You’ve learned the foundations of legal research. You’ve learned the foundations of legal writing.

    Maybe you came to law school after years of participating in speech and debate. Maybe you were active in student government or community organizing. Or maybe you’ve never done any public speaking at all. Whether you end up spending every day in the courtroom arguing to a judge or group of jurors, or in a boardroom advocating to a group of venture capitalists, a necessary part of our profession is public speaking.

    You advocate every day already. You are advocating for yourself when you write cover letters. You advocate when you interview for summer clerkships. You are using advocacy when you present at your upcoming LRW oral argument and even when you write exams or answer questions in class. Advocacy matters.

    If you didn’t already experience success as an advocate, you wouldn’t be in law school. The art of advocacy as a lawyer is an important part of your legal education, no matter where your career in law takes you. The upcoming Workshop will offer you a chance to add more skills to your repertoire.

    Professors from the Advocacy Department at the University of Texas School of Law will offer the Spring 2024 1L Public Speaking Workshop on Friday, February 2nd from, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. (with lunch provided beginning at 12:30). You will be taught by successful trial lawyers and talented National Mock Trial Champions; you will be taught by lawyers who are hired to teach experienced lawyers how to be even better.

    You will be on your feet. You will be practicing voice and gestures. You will work on fluidity and rhythm and pace and cadence and tone. No matter what your skill level when you walked in the door, in two hours, you will be a better advocate than before. And if you show up at 12:30, we’ll even feed you lunch.

    If you have any questions or would like to request the registration form, please contact Marla Massin, mmassin@law.utexas.edu.

    The book reimagines the history of philanthropy law, revealing it not to be a tool to subsidize private efforts to benefit the public, but a strategic arrangement binding ordinary Americans and elites together in a common purpose. What role do legal reforms and private solutions have in rebuilding public trust in philanthropy?

    Brakman Reiser holds a chair as Centennial Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School and is a globally recognized expert in the law at the intersection of business and charity. The book talk will be followed by a Q&A with the author. Lunch will be provided to registered attendees.

What are Congress’ powers over the Supreme Court? What are the limits of those powers? How are those powers to be enforced? What if there is a disagreement between Congress and the Court: who decides and how is a decision enforced?

    TO SAVE DEMOCRACY FROM JURISTOCRACY: J.B. THAYER AND CONGRESSIONAL POWER AFTER THE CIVIL WAR

    As many Americans once again worry that their democracy is hostage to judicial power, this Article is an archival reconstruction of how famed Harvard law professor James Bradley Thayer set out on a mission to stave off the syndrome before it stuck — though he failed in the end.

    The Article shows how Thayer (1831-1902) arrived at his epochmaking theory of judicial deference to safeguard Congress’s power after democratic revolutions of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Indeed, he hoped to see America transformed in the direction of British legislative supremacy, in which Parliament — and not the courts — reigned supreme. Scandalized by growing ventures to weaponize the federal judiciary so as to preempt the newly federalized American democracy, Thayer bet on something new in global history: mass democracy on a national scale, understood as an experiment in collective learning. The Article thereby provides a new periodization and transatlantic contextualization of the struggles over judicial fiat routinely associated the Supreme Court’s defense of laissez-faire in the early twentieth century.

    And yet, as this Article emphasizes, Thayer failed in the long run. His democratizing fix, judicial self-restraint under the “clear error standard” — which this Article shows had the same English roots as his democratic and parliamentary theory — has tragically misled reform. It embroiled Americans in a neverending debate on judicial “restraint,” even as Thayer proposed a doctrinal prescription encouraging judges to limit their power themselves. He therefore postponed an institutional remedy for an institutional syndrome. For this reason, his mission, in spite of its partial implementation after his death, now has to be rescued in its own right. Judicial self-restraint has not prevented the continuation and even the intensification of the very juristocratic syndrome Thayer rightly found so troubling. If Americans still remain with him at the dawn of our commitment to democracy, they will have to save it from judges in a new way all their own

    Faculty Colloquium - Angie Litwin, Texas

    Bartenwerfer v. Buckley and Coerced Debt

    In Bartenwerfer v. Buckley, the Supreme Court held that Mrs. Kate Bartenwerfer could be denied the discharge of a debt under Section 523(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code on the basis of fraud that her partner and husband, Mr. David Bartenwerfer, committed in selling a house that he remodeled and both spouses owned. Partnership was key to the decision; the Court embraced a Nineteenth Century precedent holding that the fraud of one partner prevented an innocent partner from discharging the debt. And the concurrence explicitly stated that the decision is limited to partners, defined using principals of agency law. Because the Bartenwerfers were both martial and business partners, a key question is which type of partnership is relevant. Fortunately for debtors with liabilities created by domestic violence, the Supreme Court characterized the Bartenwerfers as “business partners,” and caselaw under the precedent Bartenwerfer embraced largely limits partnership-imputed denials of discharge to business partnerships. Thus, much coerced debt – debt created by an abusive partner using fraud or coercion – should not be subject to denial of discharge under Bartenwerfer, because most coerced debt appears to be consumer debt. Unfortunately, in both the case law and our data, marital and business debt are not mutually exclusive. This manuscript uses data from the first in-depth study of coerced debt to argue that bankruptcy is an important avenue for relief from coerced debt, and that while Bartenwerfer is unlikely to broadly limit the discharge of coerced debt, it still may have negative effects on a narrower band of cases.

    Faculty Colloquium - Jennifer Rothman

    POSTMORTEM PRIVACY

    There has never been a more important time to revisit the common claim that privacy rights terminate with a person’s death. Today’s technology makes possible the reanimation of dead celebrities and ordinary people alike, whether to produce new performances by screen legends like James Dean or to use the voices of massacred children to advocate for gun control in Congress. Increasingly, when we die we leave behind troves of digital data, including social media posts and emails. Images of the dead continue to generate controversy and societal disapproval with a mix of legal tools to address them. Consider the recent outcry after supporters of Robert F.

    EmPOWERed for Public Interest Group

    This event is part of the Justice Center initiative designed to support students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers. For example: students who have themselves or had family members become entangled in the criminal legal system who are interested in public defense work; immigrant students, or students who are the children or family members of immigrants seeking to challenge the immigration system; low-income students seeking to challenge laws and policy that further marginalize poor people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.

    EPI gatherings serve as a space for dialogue, mentorship, and resource-sharing tailored to the particular needs and strengths of students whose public interest work as attorneys may be directly tied to their lived experiences and/or those of their loved ones. This lunch will be a unique opportunity for students to meet with Texas Law faculty over lunch to discuss navigating law school and public interest legal careers.

    Why Reparations are Not Enough

    In 2021, the California State Legislature approved a reparations scheme for victims of forced sterilization carried out from 1909-1979. As the window for victims of state-sanctioned forced sterilization to apply for reparations comes to a close in December 2023, an evaluation of the efficacy of the initiative can now be undertaken. One way of evaluating the reparations scheme’s efficacy is through the lens of transitional justice – a theory in international law describing the process and mechanisms through which a state seeks to reform and repair relations with its citizens following a mass human rights abuse, conflict, or political regime change. The California State Legislature is therefore engaging, to a certain extent, in transitional justice by creating the reparations scheme and attempting to address the historical injustice caused to its citizens. In her talk, Helen Jennings will evaluate the extent to which this engagement has been successful, and will suggest lessons from transitional justice that can be applied to California’s reckoning with the legacy of eugenics.
