Marshall Grate, whose specialty is in Labor Law and has worked on cases regarding area public schools, explained at the outset that he was not representing himself as a Constitutional Law scholar and, as a further “disclaimer” (as he put it) he had no visuals to use to augment his talk. His interest in, and independent study of, Constitutional law cases and being an avid student of history, along with an acute memory of details of historical cases more than made up for his non-multimedia presentation to us. His work in public school issues of illegal search and seizure, free speech rights, etc. has caused him to be familiar with and bring to bear the guarantees granted by our U.S. Constitution.
