On September 27, Utah Law Review OnLaw, the new Utah-focused academic legal journal at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will make its debut by co-presenting the Twin Crises in the Law CLE. The CLE, presented in partnership with the Utah State Bar, will address twin crises in the law: underserved middle class clients and underemployed lawyers. CLE presenters include former Chief Justices of the Utah Supreme Court Michael D. Zimmerman and Christine M. Durham; Curtis M Jensen, President of the Utah State Bar; Robert W. Adler, Interim Dean and James I. Far Chair and Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Utah, S.J. Quinney College of Law; Brett G. Scharffs, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at Brigham Young University, J. Reuben Clark Law School; and other distinguished members of the bench, bar and academy. CLE information is available here.
Jonathan Hornok, the executive editor of Utah Law Review OnLaw, said, “The motivating purpose of Utah Law Review OnLaw is to provide a venue for thoughtful discussion that is relevant and accessible to the Utah legal community. There is a growing national debate regarding the future of the practice of law, including how to provide meaningful access to justice for the community while maintaining sustainable employment for lawyers. I am pleased that Utah Law Review OnLaw has an opportunity to promote a local discussion of these issues among distinguished members of our legal community.” Information about Utah Law Reivew OnLaw is available here.
