Major doctrinal issues will be addressed, including claims under the 4th, 5th, and 14th Amendments against individuals and governmental entities, and the qualified immunity defense.

Practice pointers will also be offered to both plaintiffs’ and defense counsel. Several exhibits will be provided to illustrate points made, and useful sources for further research will be identified.

Lecturer Bio

Victor M. Glasberg, Esq.

Vic Glasberg turned to civil rights law following the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., at which time he was studying history in graduate school. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1976, he came to Alexandria, Virginia to work with one of the lawyers who one decade earlier had litigated Loving v. Virginia, the case that struck down laws prohibiting marriage between whites and non-whites.

Vic opened his own practice in 1982, focusing on plaintiffs’ civil rights litigation. He is a long-standing member of the legal panel of the Virginia affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union and has litigated numerous cases for the ACLU over the years. In recent years, cases arising out of abusive law enforcement actions have become an increasingly large part of the firm’s practice and given rise to numerous published trial court and appellate opinions on Fourth Amendment issues and qualified immunity.

Vic’s firm also addresses free speech, prisoners’ rights, discrimination, and other civil rights issues. Most of this litigation is in the “Rocket Docket” of the Eastern District of Virginia. The firm’s website may be found at
