Professor Ben-Dan's presentation will be a follow-up to his article, Breaking the Backbone of Unlimited Power: The Case for Abolishing Absolute Immunity for Prosecutors in Civil Rights Lawsuits. 

Registrants will be asked to read the article and help Prof. Ben-Dan address concerns and clarify a few issues with the paper. His presentation will seek to answer the question left unanswered about whether prosecutors should have qualified immunity; address issues relating to prosecutors potentially being personally liable for misconduct; and finally, discuss categories of misconduct and suggest some standards to set in place to determine elements of proof.

Professor Zamir Ben-Dan is an Assistant Professor at the Temple University Beasley School of Law.

Zamir Ben-Dan joined the Temple Law faculty in the Fall of 2022. His research interests and emerging scholarship lie in the intersections of criminal law, race and the law, and American history.

The topic and a more detailed description are forthcoming.
