Classical Rhetoric & Contemporary Law (CRCL)


September 26 - 27, 2019


William S. Boyd School of Law

Classical Rhetoric as a Lens for Contemporary Legal Praxis is a symposium of the Nevada Law Journal and will be held on September 26 & 27, 2019. Lori Johnson, Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Susan Provenzano, William Trumbull Professor of Practice at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, are the chairs/organizers of the conference. Following the symposium, there will also be a workshop on September 28. The workshop seeks proposals from scholars with works in progress (WIPs) that explore the intersections of classical rhetoric (broadly defined) and contemporary law. All events are at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  The event is sponsored by the William S. Boyd School of Law, Nevada Law Journal, and Stetson University College of Law.
