Professor Mead Presents at Capital Law School

On March 5, Professor Joseph Mead presented at Capital Law School as part of the faculty exchange program between Cleveland-Marshall and Capital Law School.  Professor Mead’s talk was entitled “Law and the Volunteer,” and it surveyed the ambiguous state of the law of volunteer liability and immunity, vicarious organizational liability for the misdeeds of the volunteer, and coverage of unpaid workers under federal and state “employee” protection laws such as anti-discrimination laws.  Professor Mead argued in this talk  that these doctrines are actually connected by a common doctrinal core, and that the law needs to give further attention to the legal status and value of volunteers.
