February 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This year’s Conger Symposium will feature three OCU Law graduates currently serving the Oklahoma legislature – Representative Jon Echols (R)(Class of 2005), Representative Collin Walke (D)(Class of 2008), and Representative Cory Williams (D)(Class of 2006).
The symposium will explore legislation that directly impacts the legal profession and broader trends from recent legislative sessions including threats to the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary, and the costs of defending laws found unconstitutional. The ethical dilemmas facing lawyer legislators will be explored. Panelists will share how serving in the legislature has affected their legal and business careers.
Professor Lee Peoples will moderate the symposium. Professor Mitchelson has will award “2 for 1” credits to externship students who attend.
