Due Process - Frank Askin, A People's Prof.DUE PROCESS

Sunday, 6/19 at 9:30am and Tuesday, 6/21 at 11:30pm

A fond farewell to teaching rarely brings kudos from the nation’s highest court. But Frank Askin, though he’s leaving the Rutgers Law classroom after half a century, is no retiring professor.  So among the tributes as he leaves teaching: a warm public sendoff from old friend and colleague Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Watch a video profile and studio conversation with the dean of New Jersey’s civil rights bar and long-serving general counsel of the national ACLU. Frank’s passion for fairness – and his lengthy FBI file, earned during years of fighting for racial justice – came long before he thought he’d be a lawyer.  Still he’s leaving his mark on New Jersey law, on how law is taught throughout the country, and on 50 years of students he inspired.
