Georgia: Legal Ethics & Professionalism Symposium

The University of Georgia School of Law is hosting its 14th Annual Legal Ethics & Professionalism Symposium on February 21, 2014, at the law school campus.  The symposium is titled, "Who Are They to Judge? Ethical and Professionalism Issues Facing the Bench."  Here is the description from the symposium website:

This annual legal ethics symposium is titled "Who Are They to Judge? Ethical and Professionalism Issues Facing the Bench." Members of the judiciary are facing increasing ethical challenges and being subjected to enhanced scrutiny as a result of the changing dynamics of both their jobs and the legal profession more generally.  During this symposium, an impressive lineup of judges, attorneys and professors will examine three important areas in this regard: (1) judicial elections and their effect on the decision-making process; (2) collegiality, decorum, and civility between the bench and the bar; and (3) the process, results, and aftermath of investigations into alleged judicial misconduct.

Here is the link for registration and program information.

Ohio State Law Review: Tort Law Symposium

The Ohio State Law Journal will host its fall symposium, "Torts and Civil Rights Law: Migration and Conflict," on November 15, 2013.  From the journal's symposium website:

This symposium will explore the theoretical and doctrinal affinities and clashes between tort and anti-discrimination law, while fostering dialogue between tort and anti-discrimination scholars. Symposium participants will explore whether the connections are strong enough to justify robust use of tort principles in anti- discrimination analysis and whether anti-discrimination law should be interpreted through a torts lens. They also will discuss whether tort law should selectively adopt anti-discrimination norms and analysis.

Here is a list of speakers and topics and here is the (free) registration infomration.

Wayne Law Review Symposium: Michigan Constitution

Law Review symposia are typically planned months in advance and occasionally a law review's topic will prove later to have been fortuitously timed.  This year, Wayne Law Review has had just such luck with their symposium next week (October 11), "A Wave of Change: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Michigan’s Constitution and the Evolution of State Constitutionalism."

As readers likely well know, the City of Detroit filed bankruptcy this summer and this filing has raised assorted questions regarding the city and state's consitutional duties and obligations, particularly relating to pension obligations.  The Wayne symposium will be much broader than the Detroit bankruptcy issue, of course, but it goes without saying that now is as good as time as any to be hosting such a conference.
