SALT LAKE CITY — A panel at the University of Utah will discuss what can be done for the government to function more effectively in the future.
The university's S.J. Quinney College of Law will host its Law Review Symposium on Friday to tackle the issue.
Titled “Governing the United States in 2020,” the symposium will feature public officials, legal scholars and political scientists who will examine the current challenges facing U.S. governance and focus on practical solutions to those problems.
Jeff Bingaman, distinguished fellow at Stanford Law School and a former U.S. senator, will deliver the keynote address.
“We aim to go beyond talking about problems to developing pragmatic solutions,” said Michael Teter, symposium organizer and associate professor of law at the U.
Teter will participate as a panelist, along with faculty from DePaul, Yale, Harvard, Stanford and Santa Clara universities; New York University; University of North Carolina; University of California Los Angeles; and Pomona College.
Louis Fisher, scholar in residence at the Constitution Project, and Justice Christine M. Durham from the Utah Supreme Court will also participate.
The event will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the law building’s Sutherland Moot Courtroom, 332 S. 1400 East. It is free and open to the public.
The symposium will be broadcast live on ulaw.tv, but preregistration is required for in-person attendance. Register at tiny.utah.edu/e506.
For lawyers, six hours of continuing legal education is offered. For more information, call 801-585-3479.
