Professor Carlton Waterhouse recently organized and participated in panels at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) in Hilton Head South Carolina on July 29 and the 86th Annual Convention of the National Bar Association in Baltimore Maryland on August 3. Professor Waterhouse spoke at SEALS about a recent Ninth Circuit Court decision suggesting that a CIA torture victim seek a reparations claim for abuses he experienced. Professor Waterhouse, who serves as the Vice Chairperson of the Law Professors Division of the NBA, organized a panel addressing diversity in law school admissions for the conference that featured Kent Lollis, the Executive Director for Diversity Initiatives at the Law School Admissions Counsel, Leroy Pernell, the Dean of the Florida A&M University School of Law and Professors Carla Pratt and Dorothy Evenson of Penn State University who recently completed a joint study on the subject. Professor Waterhouse also participated on an NBA panel examining the relationship between religion and reparations for human rights abuses and historic injustices.
Professor Waterhouse wrote a text that appeared in The Indianapolis Star on Sunday, August 21 entitled, “Beyond Guilt and Shame” regarding the debate surrounding a proposed sculpture of a freedman to be installed near the City-County Building in Indianapolis. http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011108210304
