U.S. Supreme_Court

This Wednesday, September 17, we get another in a popular series of analyses from the recent U.S. Supreme Court Term.

Organized by the State Bar CLE folks, it will include the thoughts of Judge George Anagnost as moderator, as well as panelists ASU Law Professor Paul Bender, Arizona Summit Law Professor Dave Cole, and attorney–scholar Bob McWhirter.

As they describe it:

“This symposium will review significant cases for the October 2013 Term including the Hobby Lobby and the Town of Greece case. The program will feature scholars on the Court focusing on cases presenting important questions of law, comments on individual justices’ legal perspectives, and a preview of petitions for certiorari for this coming October Term 2014.”

More information is here. I hope to see you there.

Supreme Court tallI wrote yesterday about a few conferences that crowd this week, all of them worth your time and attention. Today and tomorrow, I’ll share two more.

One week from today, we’ll have the opportunity to hear scholars and lawyers present on the most recent Supreme Court Term. They also plan to offer a preview of the upcoming Term’s cases.

Co-sponsored by the Peoria Municipal Court, this annual event was a great one last year. I’ve been able to attend before, and I’m always struck by the insights provided.

The event will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Rio Vista Recreation Center, 8866 W. Thunderbird, Peoria (1/4 mile West of Loop 101 and Thunderbird Exit).

The luncheon speaker will be Hon. William J. O’Neil, Arizona’s Presiding Disciplinary Judge.

As always, the seminar chair is the scholar–judge Hon. George T. Anagnost, Presiding Judge of the Peoria Municipal Court. Here is the faculty list:

  • Hon. William J. O’Neil, Presiding Disciplinary Judge, Supreme Court of Arizona
  • Prof. Paul Bender, Arizona State University
  • Prof. Dave Cole, Phoenix School of Law
  • Robert J. McWhirter, Esq.
