CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
The 2014 Clifford Symposium, named after Chicago-based attorney Robert A. Clifford, will be on April 24th-25th at DePaul University. This year’s symposium explores Judge Jack Weinstein’s leadership in America’s courts while examining the true meaning of seeking justice within today’s civil justice system.
The Annual Clifford Symposium celebrates its 20th year. A special address will be given by United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer. The symposium will welcome an expert team of speakers who will discuss an array of civil justice topics.
DePaul Alumnus, Robert A. Clifford, founder and supporter of the annual symposium says; “We created this symposium 20 years ago to create a platform to discuss critical issues, foster ideas with rigor and to challenge one another. This year’s event on civil justice opens the floor to create a fair debate on areas of tort law, civil justice, jury performance and the Seventh Amendment.” Robert (Bob) Clifford is the Founder and a Partner of Clifford Law Offices, ranked one of the top Chicago law firms, serving clients nationally and internationally with 19 personal injury attorneys.
Bob Clifford has dedicated his life to his profound belief in the vitality of the civil justice system within American society. In 1994 Clifford endowed the first chair on tort law and social policy, which has provided support for research and education while also making the celebrated annual Clifford Symposium possible. The annual symposium was established as a platform through which Clifford and others within America’s legal community could foster and encourage “intellectually honest discussion and debate” about the American civil justice system. This two-day symposium aims not only to spark scholarly discussion but to create a collective advocacy for advancements in both public and social policy within America.
Robert Clifford and an exceptional panel of speakers gather April 24-25 at DePaul University for the 20th annual Clifford Symposium. The distinguished roster of legal experts will commemorate Judge Jack Weinstein’s impact within America’s courts while examining the true meaning of seeking justice within today’s civil justice system.
