FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE: THE CORAM NOBIS CASE
Reopening the Constitutionality of the WWII Japanese American Internment
With remarks and commentary by the following speakers:
Mark E. Recktenwald, Chief Justice of the Hawaiâ€˜i Supreme Court
Eric K. Yamamoto, Fred T. Korematsu Professor of Law and Social Justice
Carole Hayashino, President & Executive Director of the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaiâ€˜i
In recognition of civil liberties and the constitution day, the HSBA Civic Education Committee, the William S. Richardson School of Law, and the Fred t. Korematsu Professorship in Law and Social Justice have organized a special program featuring excerpts of the film: Fighting for Justice: the Coram Nobis Cases.
Fighting for Justice is a documentary with special insight and inspiration for law students and young lawyers interested in social justice. The film traces the legal struggle of Fred Korematsu, Gordon Hirabayashi, and Min Yasui as their legal teams of mostly idealistic young lawyers worked to exonerate them for defying military orders connected with the incarceration of the Japanese Americans during World War II. The film addresses how law students, lawyers, and community advocates can join together to undo longstanding historical injustices.
Following the film and remarks, there will be a question and answer session with Professor Yamamoto and Carole Hayashino.
This event is free. All law students, faculty and staff, HSBA members, and the general public are invited. Refreshments will be served.
Free, open to the Public
