Qualified Immunity: The State of the Law and Where We Go from Here
RLS principal Tim Talbot is speaking at the Bar Association of San Francisco’s seminar concerning the Qualified Immunity Doctrine and the recent debate of its role in law enforcement and modern society.
Qualified immunity has been a hot topic in the news lately as communities across the country debate the role of police and other law enforcement officers. But what is qualified immunity? And how does this doctrine affect public offices, agencies, and the victims of police misconduct? We will discuss this doctrine at the micro and macro level with practitioners and legal scholars.
- Qualified immunity doctrine in police misconduct cases from a practitioner’s perspective, including plaintiff and defense perspectives.
- The role of the doctrine in today’s society.
- The current law at the federal and state level.
- Current trends and proposed changes to the law at the federal and state level.
