School of Humanities and Social Sciences to host panel discussion on grand juries

Morehead State’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences will present a panel discussion entitled "Grand Juries 101: Secrecy and Warrants" Wednesday, Oct. 14, from noon to 1 p.m.  

The panelists will meet in Rader Hall 111, and the discussion will be streamed live to Rader Hall 112. Together, these rooms can accommodate up to 40 audience members. A WebEx virtual room will be available for those who want to watch remotely at https://moreheadstate.webex.com/meet/d.murphy. A video of the panel will also be available on YouTube.

The panel members will include Joe Dunman, MSU assistant professor of legal studies and civil rights attorney; David Grise, MSU visiting assistant professor of legal studies and former federal prosecutor in Washington D.C. and Kentucky; and Amanda London, visiting assistant professor of criminology at MSU who previously worked for the Kentucky Department of Corrections in Louisville. The goal of the panel is to help participants understand the nature of grand juries and warrants.

“Students will have a view of grand juries from all sides and from inside the secret proceedings,” said Dr. Dianna Murphy, associate dean for the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
