S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Jim Holbrook is featured in a new documentary released to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. “The Journey Home,” produced by sisters Sharlene Hawkes and Elayne Harmer, explores the treatment of veterans who returned home after serving in the Vietnam War.
On Thursday, November 10, 2016, from 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m., the S.J. Quinney College of Law will screen the film and host a panel discussion featuring veterans of the Vietnam War who are also graduates of the College of Law. The panel will discuss the ethical dilemmas raised by treatment of Vietnam veterans —and how many of these issues are still relevant today.
The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided. Attorneys are eligible to receive CLE credit and the event meets the CLE ethics component. Veterans who are graduates of the College of Law —as well as current student veterans enrolled at the College of Law —will be honored with commemorate coins and U Vet pins (if possible, please notify Professor Holbrook in advance that you will be attending and would like a pin and coin: firstname.lastname@example.org). Holbrook is also working on a project to document all veterans who are alumni of the S.J. Quinney College of Law, and would love for you to contact him with your service information.
Also at the event, SJQ Vietnam veterans are eligible to receive a copy of an original collection of stories released to honor and remember the service, duty, and sacrifice of Vietnam era veterans. The book, “Vietnam War 50th Commemoration: A Time To Honor,” is a joint project to honor Vietnam veterans.
Free and open to the public. 1 hour Ethics CLE (pending).
