Is there ever a time when the Rule of Law must be bent? May a Judge refuse to enforce the law? The German Judicial system had a long tradition of legal excellence. Yet Judges in Germany between 1933 and 1945 interpreted and enforced oppressive Nazi laws without dissent. What does this say about our ides of justice? Judge Bernstein, Administrative Judge of the Family Division of the 11th Circuit of Florida, will discuss the philosophy of judging and whether lessons from the Holocaust apply to Judges today at the 14th Annual Judges & Lawyers Event. Free to Museum Members in the legal profession; $36 Non-Members; $50 (Includes Admission and Family Membership for 1 year).
