The FBA Civil Rights Section will be hosting the first – of the soon to be -annual – Civil Rights Law Éttouffée CLE in New Orleans this April 7, 2017.

The Éttouffée will be a full day of Civil Rights Law CLEs, with instruction for practitioners from the top experts in their field, on timely Civil Rights Law topics including: Impact Litigation and Social Justice Warriors; The Standards for Street Protest and First Amendment Policing; For-Profit Policing: Fines, Fees, and Forfeitures; Pre-Trial detainees v. Post-Conviction Prisoners; The Use of Force Continuum: Comparing Federal and State Standards; "Religious Freedom" vs. LGBT Equality: Legislative Attempts to Empower Anti-LGBT Discrimination; Charters, Cybers and Special Education; An examination of the use of federal prohibitions on medical marijuana and interstate traveling with medicinal marijuana; and an exploration of the cutting-edge issues at the intersection of civil rights and immigration law.

The Éttouffée also takes place the Friday of The French Quarter Music Fest, one of NOLA’s premier music events, so come for the legal education and stay for the culture!
