Pepperdine Law Review Hosts Annual Symposium Exploring “The Lawyer of the Future”
The School of Law’s Pepperdine Law Review will host its annual symposium Friday, Apr. 20, around the theme “The Lawyer of the Future: Exploring the Impact of Past and Present Lawyers and the Lessons They Provide for Future Generations.” The symposium will run from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the School of Law, Malibu.
The Lawyer of the Future Symposium will showcase the lawyers of the past and present, the variety of roles they serve within American society, and what their experiences and models teach us about who the lawyers of the future can and should be. From public servants to philanthropists, government officials to business entrepreneurs, the symposium will focus on the role of lawyers as working models of the rule of law.
Each symposium presenter will articulate the role that he or she sees lawyers serving in society. Given the cacophony of public and political rhetoric concerning the practice of law, the symposium will address a new form of lawyer for the future—modeling civil discourse, orderly resolution of conflict, and informed public discussion and debate.
The underlying purpose of the symposium is to gain a better understanding of the role that American lawyers have played in the past, what challenges and opportunities they face in the present, and how lawyers will best be equipped in the future to meet the needs and expectations of their clients.
