Next Wednesday, March 24, at 2:15 p.m. ET, Alex Reinert, the Max Freund Professor of Litigation & Advocacy and Director of the Center for Rights and Justice at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, will join Benjamin Wittes, Lawfare editor-in-chief, to discuss qualified immunity, a judicial doctrine that shields those in law enforcement from being held personally responsible for constitutional violations. Professor Reinert recently wrote an article for Lawfare titled, “Unpacking a Decade of Appellate Decisions on Qualified Immunity” that summarizes his empirical research which provides the most comprehensive study to date of the resolution of qualified immunity appeals in federal court.

Bryce Klehm is a first year law student at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is a former associate editor at Lawfare.
