CLEPR 40th Anniversary Tickets On Sale Now
Some 40 years ago the Council on Legal Education and Professional Responsibility (CLEPR) began making nearly 11 million dollars in grants to law schools across the country to establish live-client clinics, effectively starting modern clinical legal education. A committee composed of delegates from the AALS Clinical Section, CLEA and the ABA Section on Legal Education will host a dinner celebrating CLEPR’S 40th anniversary on Wednesday January 7, 2009, during the AALS Annual Meeting in San Diego. At the Celebration William Pincus, CLEPR's President, will be honored, along with early CLEPR pioneer, the Honorable Dorothy W. Nelson of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The evening’s program will include a keynote address from Erwin Chemerinsky, founding dean of University of California Irvine School of Law, and a short film on CLEPR by Prof. Sandy Ogilvy. The Celebration is made possible by the financial support of over 30 law schools and is tied to that afternoon’s Annual Meeting session by the AALS Clinical Legal Education and Professional Responsibility Sections entitled Celebrating and Reflecting on CLEPR: What Have We Learned About Legal Education and Where are We Headed.
The Celebration is being held just a short walk away from the Annual Meeting in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District. Admission is $27.50 for a multi-course dinner, a complimentary drink, and dancing in downtown San Diego. Seating is limited and seats are expected to sell out quickly.
