Stare Decisis focus of discussion at Wayne Law

The Michigan Chapter and the Wayne State University Law School Student Chapter of the American Constitution Society will present “The Michigan Supreme Court and Stare Decisis,” featuring Robert A. Sedler, Wayne Law distinguished professor of law, on Tuesday, March 2, at 6 p.m. in the Partrich Auditorium at 471 West Palmer Street in Detroit. The event is free of charge.

Sedler will discuss his study of the court’s 1999-2000 jurisprudence, including several decisions overruling prior decisions of the Court.
