The University of Arkansas School of Law will host the 2nd Annual Corbin Symposium sponsored by the Pulaski County Bar Foundation March 28-29, 2019 in Fayetteville.
The two-day program is focused on appellate practice (both state and federal) but will include some fascinating and informative speakers that have much to offer beyond appellate practice tips. It includes: United States Circuit Judges from the 5th, 6th, 8th, and 10th Circuits; state court appellate judges from Arizona, Minnesota, and Arkansas; experts on legal writing; one of the country’s top-ten appellate lawyers (Kannon Shanmugan) https://www.paulweiss.com/professionals/partners-and-counsel/kannon-k-shanmugam; and the dean of legal bloggers, Howard Bashman. https://howappealing.abovethelaw.com
There is also an opportunity to meet with the speakers and fellow attendees at a reception Thursday evening (you can register to attend the reception even if you cannot attend the program). The program includes 12 hours of CLE including 1 ethics hour.
The Symposium was created to honor the memory of Justice Donald L. Corbin and his contributions to the legal profession. Funds raised by the Symposium will be used to endow scholarships at the University of Arkansas Leflar Law Center and UA Little Rock Bowen School of Law and to encourage training and education in Appellate Advocacy.
