Theodore Roosevelt & the Progressive Era

Tues., Oct. 3
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
NJ Law Center, New Brunswick

Join us as Theodore Roosevelt is brought to life by actor-historian Peyton Dixon.

Regarded by some as America’s greatest president, Theodore Roosevelt (Teddy) is celebrated by historians and legal scholars for both his passion for conservation and his governmental reform accomplishments, including his work on corporate monopolies (which earned him the nickname “trust buster”). As president, Roosevelt championed the Progressive movement, which changed the paradigm of American liberty and democracy and facilitated one of the most important shifts our government has experienced since the enactment of the Constitution.

Why You Need To Attend: This unique CLE event (part of NJICLE’s esteemed History Meets CLE Series) provides you with an opportunity to hear directly from President Roosevelt, as United States Constitution expert Donald Scarinci, Esq. is joined by Roosevelt expert, historian and actor Peyton Dixon. Register today and decide for yourself whether Roosevelt was the leader of a movement or just a person who found his place in history riding the crest of the tidal wave of change as America and the world entered the modern era. Whatever your conclusion, the United States of today has more in common with the progressive era than with the Federal era when the government began, and many of the lessons of that time and movement still hold true today.

Meet the man who helped unmask Madoff!

Frank Casey will share the inside story of how he and his colleagues exposed the Ponzi scheme, and how their efforts to draw regulatory attention to the matter went unanswered. He will examine why due diligence by regulators and hedge funds failed, suggest what needs to be done to prevent the situation from repeating itself, and discuss lessons we can all learn from the Madoff scandal.

He will then be joined by members of the NJSBA who are major players in the financial industry, in an interactive round table discussion in which they will discuss how the Madoff crime resonates to this day through changed regulations and procedures, how to safeguard your money and your client’s money, and questions raised by the audience.

John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and
the American Dialogue

Presented in cooperation with the New Jersey State Bar Foundation

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, our second and third presidents, signers of the Declaration of Independence, diplomats and statesmen, friends and rivals, and founding fathers, died on the same day, July 4, 1826, on the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

Time and history brought together Adams, the New Englander, federalist and advocate, and Jefferson, the Virginian, classic Republican and writer, help create some the fundamental liberties we enjoy today. Both were lawyers, both were political. They each had strong opinions and they often disagreed with one another, yet they differed as rational friends. They were not perfect men, but their legal and political legacies live on every day in courtrooms and legislatures all across the country.

Their timeless words echo through the generations, and as a nation we continue to try to live up to the ideals they espoused. Historian Joseph Ellis wrote that they “came to embody the American dialogue.” That dialogue about what freedom means and what role government should or shouldn’t play in the lives of its citizens continues unto this day and is the main pillar of our legal system. It also defines who we are as nation. We live in their vision and continually seek to understand it - both for ourselves and for those who will come after us.
