Description: 

It has become widely accepted that a series of high-profile child sexual abuse cases from the 1980s and early 1990s were "witch hunts." That view first took hold in the media, then it spread to the courts and to parts of academia. Painstaking original trial court research challenges the accuracy of that narrative.  These findings have significant implications on the debate over "child suggestibility" and the appropriateness of "taint hearings" for children.    PRESENTER Ross E. Cheit is professor of Political Science and Public Policy at Brown University. He has a  PhD and law degree from the University of California Berkeley. Dr. Cheit is an inactive member of the California bar and is Chair of the Rhode Island Ethics Commission. He spent more than fifteen years researching his new book, The Witch-Hunt Narrative (Oxford University Press).This program is free but you must preregisterby 04/11/2014 if you plan to attend.This program has been approved for two (2.0) hours of substantive law credits for Pennsylvania lawyers.  CLE credits may be available in other jurisdictions as well.
