Orrin G. Hatch Lecture Series
08/26/2010The Orrin G. Hatch Distinguished Trial Lawyer Lecture Series
Six years ago, James W. Parkinson ('76), Judges Dee V. Benson ('76), Paul M. Warner ('76) and Douglas P. Miller (Pepperdine '78) and Professor Michael Goldsmith combined their efforts to create this program. Their hope was to inspire law students and educate them on the basics of trial practice.
The program was named after Senator Orrin G. Hatch who is a former trial lawyer and was Chair of the senate Judiciary Committee at the time. Senator Hatch has been involved in all the major decisions affecting the judicial system in the US for the last 30 years. He attends the program every year and actively participates.
To be on the program, a speaker must be a well known, exceptional trial lawyer or judge. Organizers of the lecture series have had great success in attracting trial lawyers and judges from around the world.
Keynote address and panel discussions include:
