Do You Know Your Rights? Interactions with the Police

Know Your Rights When It Comes to Interactions with the Police

Thursday, November 16, 2017
6:30 – 8:00 pm
James Brown African American Room

Dealing with the police has always been a sensitive subject for many, and in the current climate it is more important than ever to know what rights we are afforded under the Constitution. During this seminar will be discussing 4th Amendment law through the lens of police interaction, with a focus on distinguishing between stop & frisk Terry stops, custodial arrests, and non-seizure encounters.

Apart from the legal doctrine, we will also be discussing the informal practice of knowing how and when to exercise your rights.

This seminar is part of the series Do You Know Your Rights?  For more information about the series, click here.

The phrase “knowledge is power” is certainly true when it comes to defending your rights.  Learn to protect yourself and your family.  The Rutgers Law School has partnered with the Newark Public Library to offer a series of free legal information sessions for the community during the months of October and November.
