This is the first time the College of Law has hosted the national event.
The program’s keynote speaker is Eugene Fidell, a senior research scholar in law and the Florence Rogatz Visiting Lecturer in Law at Yale Law School who is the 2016 Order of the Coif Distinguished Visitor. Fidell will speak on March 31 at 7:15 p.m. in the Gray Ceremonial Courtroom in Dineen Hall. The talk is open to all University faculty and staff.
