In honor of Constitution Day, please join Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Cleveland State University for a premier showing of the film The Constitution Project: Search and Seizure* which features Mapp v. Ohio, a landmark United States Supreme Court case on the 4th Amendment arising in the Cleveland Area. After the film, Professor Jonathan Witmer-Rich will lead a discussion about the exclusionary rule: what should happen when the police illegally invade someone's privacy, in violation of the Fourth Amendment? He will discuss the history of the exclusionary rule, describe the continued debate about the wisdom of excluding reliable evidence in a criminal trial, and then lead the audience in a discussion of that debate.
*This film is a project of the Leonore Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and it will not be officially released until Constitution Day 2012.

Visit two Constitution Day displays. The first, titled "We the People" is located on the 1st floor of the Michael Schwartz Library (in Rhodes Tower) and the Law display, which features information about the Mapp v. Ohio case, is located in the lobby near the entrance of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library.

Call 216-875-9734 for more information about Constitution Day.
