Lectures and Events

We host numerous CLE-eligible lectures, conferences and events on the latest legal topics in numerous areas. Our keynote speakers are top leaders in their fields and have included ambassadors, global CEOs, judges, high-ranking international officials and more. We webcast our events, and online CLE credits are available.

Women’s Law & Leadership Initiative

Our alumni organize an annual conference each fall to promote and support women in leadership roles in business and in the legal profession. The initiative also includes a colloquium – a one-semester weekly course taught by alumni, mid-level attorneys and senior leaders in the legal field.

Society of Benchers

This invitation-only dinner event is held annually to celebrate the induction of new members. The Society of Benchers is a prestigious group established in 1962 to honor alumni and non-alumni who make outstanding contributions to their communities and the legal profession and manifest an interest in the progress of the law school. The Society brings honor to its members and to the law school, and provides valuable counsel and leadership in carrying forward the work of the institution.

We maintain a list of our faculty and the topics of the lectures they have provided at conferences across the nation. These faculty members are available to speak at your firm at no cost. We will also handle arrangements for CLE credits.
