McCulloch to discuss Ferguson, policing at SLU law forum
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch will serve as keynote speaker at a Saint Louis University symposium on law enforcement issues after the fatal Ferguson police shooting.
An announcement from the student group coordinating the February 20 law school event says the annual Public Law Review symposium will address "legal challenges to law enforcement" after the August shooting of Michael Brown.
The event's title is "The Thin Blue Line: Policing Post-Ferguson."
A county grand jury determined in November that former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson didn't use excessive force in Brown's death.
McCulloch is facing several legal and ethics challenges to how his office handled the case.
The elected prosecutor also will be honored Friday in St. Louis by Missouri Lawyers Weekly as one of four top "influential lawyers" in 2014.
