Kansas Law Review Symposium 2021: Judicial Conduct and Misconduct

This month, rather than providing scholarly articles for review, the LEMR invites its readers to participate in what promises to be an excellent and informative program with legal ethics scholars from across the nation.

For the 2021 Kansas Law Review Symposium, the University of Kansas Law Review has put together a program titled:

Judicial Conduct & Misconduct: A Review of Judicial Behavior from Sexting to Discrimination

The Symposium will take place virtually on November 15, 2021, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m., and it will feature a panel of judicial ethics experts discussing judicial conduct and misconduct, guidelines necessary to promote ethical behavior, and reforms needed to prevent any similar conduct in the future. The current program and speakers list is:
