The Duke Conference: Bench-Bar-Academy Distinguished Lawyers’ Series
The Center for Judicial Studies is launching an exciting new series of bench-bar-academy conferences that identify serious problems in the law, develop practical solutions, and effect real improvements in laws, rules, and regulations. The conferences bring together prominent bench leaders, government officials, senior-level lawyers, technical experts, and academics to address emerging legal issues and develop consensus positions that will guide government policy-makers and decision-makers.
The conferences typically are invitation only and are purposely small and selective, e.g., inviting only 5 judges, 5 scholars, and 50 senior-level lawyers. The number of participants is limited to permit prominent judges, lawyers, and academics to discuss important issues fully and frankly in a collaborative environment. All invited to these conferences are expected to actively participate in discussions.
