University of Baltimore Law Jan. 12 Webinar Will Examine Challenges to the Peaceful Transfer of Power

In the wake of an insurrection at the Capitol building in support of the defeated sitting president, which coincided with a move by some lawmakers to challenge certification of the Electoral College results, the University of Baltimore School of Law will offer a webinar featuring several law professors on Tuesday, Jan. 12 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Prof. Michael Higginbotham
Dean Joseph Curtis Professor of Law F. Michael Higginbotham.

“Challenges to the Peaceful Transfer of Power” will examine what led to the Jan. 6 insurrection, the response by law enforcement, ethical obligations of elected officials to ensure a peaceful transfer of power, and constitutional remedies for a nation concerned about the stability of a president who refuses to concede the election and who actively incited the insurrection.

Panelists will include Professors Kim Wehle, Michael Higginbotham, Robert Knowles and Elizabeth Keyes. Law Dean Ronald Weich will moderate the discussion.

The webinar is part of the continuing UB Law in Focus Discussion Series. The public is invited to participate. Register here.
