    UT Law Alumnae @ SCOTUS

    Come hear what it's like to argue and win a case in front of the Supreme Court of the United States from two of UT Law’s own: Jane Webre, '89, counsel of record in Gunn v. Minton, and Cindy Connolly, '96, co-counsel. Jane and Cindy will discuss their experiences of taking a case from state jurisdiction to the national stage, including the pressures and highlights associated with arguing and ultimately winning a case heard by SCOTUS.

    Jane and Cindy brought Gunn v. Minton to the Supreme Court of the United States requesting that a decision by the Supreme Court of Texas be reversed. The state court held that a group of legal malpractice claims, involving an underlying patent matter, fell exclusively within federal jurisdiction. Jane and Cindy were successful, and the Supreme Court of the United States decided that the claims would go forward in state court. Read the full SCOTUS opinion here.

    GIDEON'S ARMY Screening

    GIDEON’S ARMY (HBO Documentary Films, 2013 Sundance Films Official Selection) follows the personal stories of Travis Williams, Brandy Alexander and June Hardwick, three young public defenders who are part of a small group of idealistic lawyers in the Deep South challenging the assumptions that drive a criminal justice system strained to the breaking point. Backed by mentor Jonathan “Rap” Rapping, a charismatic leader who heads the Southern Public Defender Training Center (now known as Gideon’s Promise) they struggle against long hours, low pay and staggering caseloads so common that even the most committed often give up in their first year. Nearly 50 years since the landmark Supreme Court ruling Gideon vs. Wainwright that established the right to counsel, can these courageous lawyers revolutionize the way America thinks about indigent defense and make “justice for all” a reality?

    Refreshments will be served. RSVP by Monday, September 30, on UT Law Symplicity by selecting the 'Events' tab. Sponsored by the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law and Career Services Office.

Colonel Dreier has a military career spanning from operations Classic Resolve and Earnest Will during the Cold War (in which he served as an intelligence analyst), through the wars in Afghanistan (where he served as a strategic policy planner) and Iraq (working on reconstruction of judicial and executive functions in Wasit Province, Iraq). He additionally served with both the Marine Corps Embassy Security Group (Department of State), and the Marine Corps Special Operations Command before entering the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps of the U.S. Army at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He has handled over three hundred cases and been sole or lead counsel in thirty-three contested trials, of which he has won thirty.
