Plan now to attend the Symposium on Plain Language Jury Instructions in Topeka, Kansas, April 6-8, 2008. Hosted by the Center for Excellence in Advocacy, in collaboration with Washburn University School of Law's Legal Analysis, Research, and Writing Program, the symposium features several notable speakers, including keynote speaker, the Honorable Carol Corrigan, Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court. Justice Corrigan chaired the California Judicial Council Task Force on Jury Instructions from 1997 to 2005, and she was among three California justices who received the 2007 Golden Pen Award. Presenters and panelists include Joe Kimble, Wayne Schiess, and Mary Barnard Ray, all well known in the national legal writing community.
Although there is no fee to attend the symposium, seating is limited; therefore, you must register (which you can accomplish online) in order to attend. If you are an attorney licensed in Kansas or Missouri attorneys, note that the program will permit you to earn at least 9 CLE credits at no charge.
