While I have previously taught a similar Olli course where the focus was on older decisions of historical import, this case will focus on recent decisions of note, i.e election law decisions as well as cases of wide importance and relevance the court has agreed to hear in the 2021-2022 term which begins the first Monday in October. Although the results of pending appeals cannot be predicted with complete accuracy we will explore the possible outcomes, and the potential rationales for a particular result.
Instructor: Richard Sievers
I am educated as a lawyer, and practiced civil trial law in Lincoln, Nebraska, for 19 years, until my appointment in 1992 as the first Chief Judge on the newly formed Nebraska Court of Appeals. I served on the Court until May 31, 2013, during which time I authored approximately 1600 appellate opinions. Upon my retirement I joined a Lincoln law firm as Of Counsel focusing mainly on arbitration and mediation, which I continue to do from Green Valley. From 1988 to 2000 I taught Trial Advocacy as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Nebraska College of Law.
