In 2016, the nation marks the 50th anniversary of perhaps the nation's best-known US Supreme Court case, Miranda v. Arizona. The Miranda Warning has become ingrained in law enforcement and has permeated popular consciousness through countless recitations in films and television shows. Yet Miranda is only part of the story when it comes to the procedures for ensuring justice. The 2016 Law Day theme, Miranda: More than Words, will explore the procedural protections afforded to all of us by the US Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.

WilmerHale Partner Ronald Machen will be a panelist during the public program series.
