Legal Briefs program returns featuring law professor

The Wayne State University Law School Legal Briefs program is back this fall, featuring current legal content for alumni, students, and friends. This virtual event will take place over Zoom and will be moderated by the development and alumni affairs team within Wayne Law. The program’s total run time is about 1 hour, with presentation time as well as an opportunity for alumni, students, and friends of Wayne Law to ask questions and connect in dialogue. 

On Thursday, October 27, at 5:30 p.m. ,alumni and friends of Wayne Law can attend the Legal Briefs program featuring Justin Long, associate professor of law. Long’s presentation will focus on abortion-rights litigation in the Michigan supreme court and the role of state constitutionalism in protecting civil rights as the federal Supreme Court turns away from this historic role.

Long studies state constitutionalism, public education law, urban law, and federalism. He is the associate director for education law and policy of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, and regularly works with civil rights activists in the community. He served as reporter for the Michigan Judicial Selection Task Force, a citizens’ commission working to reform Michigan’s process for selecting supreme court justices. 

This event is virtual (via Zoom) and login details will be shared with registered guests ahead of the event.  To register for the free online event, visit
