The Federalist Society is excited to host Clark Neily, Vice President of Criminal Justice at The Cato Institute, for a discussion on qualified immunity reform. Please join us on Wednesday September 9 from 12:50-1:50 pm. The Zoom link for the event is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82544964776

The doctrine of qualified immunity has recently become the topic of debate on both sides of the ideological aisle. Calls for its reform have risen after multiple incidences of high-profile police shootings have filled the news. These calls have even come from the nation's highest Court, with Justice Clarence Thomas criticizing the doctrine. 

Mr. Neily brings extensive experience to the discussion. His work at the Cato Institute focuses on constitutional law, police accountability, and overcriminalization.  Prior to joining the Cato Institute, Mr. Neily was a litigator with the Institute of Justice. He also served as co-counsel in the landmark Supreme Court case, District of Columbia v. Heller. After graduating from the University of Texas with his J.D., he served as a law clerk to Judge Royce Lamberth of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. 

We hope you can join us for this important discussion!
