Join us on The Center's Facebook page every Thursday at 3pm for Tea with RHJC, a virtual program with RHJC President Kristan McMahon where she and a guest discuss Jackson's legacy and work and how it relates to issues today.
Public health officials across the nation and the world are working hard to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). In light of this and in cooperation with New York State Governor Cuomo's mandate directing non-essential workers to stay home, The Robert H. Jackson Center is closed until further notice. Staff members are working remotely and can be reached via email. We will not be accepting or facilitating tours at this time.
This unit will empower students to reflect on their personal career goals, brainstorm steps toward reaching those goals and use Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson as a case study of an individual who ascended from ordinary life in small-town America to the highest echelons of American government.
The unit of study is structured to take place over several class sessions depending on student work pace and the desired depth of research. Customization and adaptation are encouraged for differentiation and time management imperatives.
How do we truly know if something is moral? Designed for the International Baccalaureate student and teacher, this unit is designed to offer students a detailed case study on how Robert H. Jackson led the allied efforts to apply a universal concept of ethical justice to Nazi officials captured at the end of World War II vis a vis the Nuremberg Tribunal. Students will also consider the efficacy in developing UN International Tribunals and the International Criminal Courts.
The Robert H. Jackson Center envisions a global society where the universal principles of equality, fairness and justice prevail.
This exhibit pays tribute to Stan Nelson Lundine and celebrates his political career nearly 50 years after it began.
This tribute to the legacy of Robert H. Jackson was made possible through the generosity of our donors, and specifically Thomas Loftus III, Robert Loftus, and Julia Craighill, three of Jackson’s grandchildren.
