The symposium is presented by the American Inns of Court and Georgetown University Law Center with assistance and support from the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple in London. The purpose of the symposium is to discuss timely topics relating to the practice of law and the administration of justice.
This American Inns of Court national event provides Inn leaders and members unparalleled opportunities to meet and exchange ideas while fulfilling continuing legal education requirements coordinated by The Georgetown University Law Center.
Building on the friendship between distinguished members of the Bench and Bar in the United States and the United Kingdom, the symposium will be an inspiring and memorable event featuring fascinating speakers and timely topics relating to the practice of law and the administration of justice.
All members of the legal profession will be inspired by the distinguished group of judges and lawyers assembled to be presenters, as well as the state of the art program sessions that will examine the special challenges of technology; professionalism and civility on the Bench; legal education, training and mentoring; and the influence of the media on the image of the legal profession.
We are delighted that the following distinguished judges have already agreed to be presenters at the symposium:
- Justice Stephen G. Breyer
- Lord Nicholas Phillips, President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom
- Justice Sandra Day O’Connor
- Justice John Murray, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ireland
