Procedure is Power

November 08, 2013

On Friday and Saturday, November 15-16 the University of Pennsylvania Law Review will host a major symposium, “The Federal Rules at 75,” which will bring to  Penn Law a number of the country’s leading scholars on procedure and prominent judges. The event will feature opening remarks Friday afternoon by U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D –RI), and a Saturday luncheon keynote by Harold Koh, the Sterling Professor of International Law at Yale and former Legal Adviser at the U.S. State Department.

“This two-day event will explore some of the most important issues in civil procedure and federal rulemaking, examining where we’ve come from and where we’re headed,” said Stephen Burbank, the David Berger Professor for the Administration of Justice at the Law School. “ The symposium will also showcase Penn Law’s unique strengths in this field, particularly in the final panel which will feature five Penn Law procedure scholars, and which will be moderated by Prof. Arthur Miller of NYU.”

The event is free for students, scholars and judges. This program has been approved for 8.5 hours of substantive law credits for Pennsylvania lawyers. CLE credit may be available in other jurisdictions as well.  Attendees seeking CLE credit should bring separate payment ($85.00, or $40.00 for public interest attorneys) - cash or check - payable to “The Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania”.  For lawyers not attending the entire conference who are seeking CLE credit, the fee is $15 per credit hour.
