CLE: History on Trial: The Alton School Cases

In 1897, Scott Bibb, an African-American father of two school-age children, resisted the newly-imposed racial segregation in the Alton, Illinois schools. Join us in Chicago on December 9, 2016 for a look at the family’s persistent legal efforts over the next 11 years and a panel discussion regarding how the case might have unfolded under current laws and rules. The program includes a video replay of the DePaul University Theater School production chronicling the events surrounding this case.

The program is presented by the Illinois State Bar Association and co-sponsored by the Illinois Supreme Court Historic Preservation Commission. It qualifies for 1.50 hours MCLE credit, including 1.50 hours Professional Responsibility MCLE credit (subject to approval).
