The Association will host two events during the next month. On April 6, 2016, the ALA will host “Reel Appeal: Legal Ethics in the Movies,” moderated by Judge James E. Lockemy of the South Carolina Court of Appeals, at the John Marshall Law School. The event will use film as an avenue to discuss ethical questions appellate judges and attorneys face in their careers on a daily basis. The panelists will include Professor Paul Bergman of the UCLA School of Law and co-author of the book Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies, Kirsten M. Castañeda of Alexander Dubose Jefferson & Townsend LLP in Dallas, and Mark Kressel of Horvitz & Levy LLP in Los Angeles. Attendees will receive 1 hour of MCLE ethics credit.
On April 12, 2016, the ALA’s annual roundtable luncheon featuring the justices of the Illinois Appellate Court, Second District, will be held at The Centre of Elgin, Heritage Ballroom in Elgin. Space permitting, attendees will enjoy lunch with an individual justice, as each jurist will be seated at a separate table. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to ask the justices for tips and practice pointers in a casual and cordial atmosphere. Attendees will receive 1 hour of MCLE credit.
