On Monday, April 23 the law school is pleased to host two terrific events. First, we are delighted to welcome California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu who will deliver the annual Judge Lloyd D. George Lecture on the Judicial Process. Justice Liu joined the bench after a distinguished career in private practice and as a law professor at UC Berkeley. Justice Liu will engage in a conversation with Professor Anne Traum, Director of the Appellate Clinic at the law school, and topics will include: the judicial response to new challenges from the executive branch, issues around sentencing and incarceration, the role of specialty courts, the unique challenges around appellate judging, elected versus vs appointed judges, and the federal appointment process. This talk honors Judge Lloyd George, a long-time Nevada federal judge and mentor to generations of law students and fellow judges. Follow this link to register.
That evening, the Society of Advocates together with the Clark County Bar Association (CCBA) will host the final round of Boyd/CCBA Moot Court Competition. The final round will be judged by Justice Liu, Justice Kristina Pickering of the Nevada Supreme Court, and Judge Andrew Gordon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. This event will be at 4:30 pm in the Thomas & Mack Moot Courtroom. Come cheer on our students!
