Dean Tacha Discusses “Recognizing America’s Judiciary” As Part of Distinguished Panel of Chief Judges
Pepperdine University has partnered with the Directors Roundtable and the UCLA School of Law to participate in a panel discussion titled, “Recognizing America’s Judiciary: A Dialogue with Chief Judges on Key Issues for Leaders of Business and the Community,” on which School of Law dean Deanell Reece Tacha will sit. The roundtable will take place Tuesday, July 31, from 6 to 9 p.m., in Room 1357 of the UCLA School of Law.
Dean Tacha, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, will join the Honorable Alex Kozinksi, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and Normal L. Epstein, Presiding Justice of the California Court of Appeal (Second District, 4th Division).
Tacha, Kozinski, and Epstein will analyze issues that are not only key for lawyers, but also important for business leaders and other citizens. These include key issues facing business; how companies and other groups can be effectively represented in court; and what budgets are needed for efficient operation of the courts to enhance timeliness and reduce the cost of litigation for the parties.
The Directors Roundtable will host a series of parallel events with Chief Justices in major cities nationwide. The Directors Roundtable Institute is a not-for-profit, which organizes worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.
Two hours of California MCLE credits will be provided to attendees; register here. For more information, contact Karen Todd at (727) 493-2067 or visit the Directors Roundtable website or the Pepperdine School of Law website.
