Cops & Cocktails: A Talk on Criminal Procedure and Constitutional Rights

Join the Federalist Society, Consovoy McCarthy Park, the Liberty & Law Center, and the National Security Institute for Cops & Cocktails: a lecture on constitutional rights, civil liberties, and what to do in police encounters. Arthur Rizer (GMU Adjunct Professor and NSI Fellow) will draw on his real life experience as a former police officer, U.S. Army Officer, and federal prosecutor to discuss the balance of civil and constitutional rights with legitimate law enforcement goals. He will also address the rising police militarization in America and its implications for ordinary U.S. citizens. Come learn about the timeless and complex relationship between security and liberty.

This lecture will be followed by an Alumni, Faculty and Friends reception in the atrium featuring wine donated by Cabana Winery along with beer and heavy hors d’oeuvres! The talk given by Professor Rizer will begin at 6pm in the Founders Hall multipurpose room 125 (1st floor, far left when facing Arlington Campus building). There will be signs and students to guide you. Parking is available in the Founders Hall and Vernon Smith Garages. Information can be found here under “visitor parking” https://transportation.gmu.edu/arlington/.
