Judge Mark R. Kravitz Symposium
The Judge Mark R. Kravitz Inaugural Symposium
"Exploring the Vanishing Trial Phenomenon"
The number of trials in federal and state courts across the country has steadily declined, creating the phenomenon of the vanishing trial. Our inaugural symposium on the administration of justice, named in honor of Judge Kravitz, will be on the topic of “The Vanishing Trial,” which was the subject of both a published article by Judge Kravitz and his keynote speech at the Connecticut Bar Foundation Annual Reception in 2005.
The symposium will explore the landscape of the vanishing trials; panelists will discuss data on the extent to which the number of trials has become smaller, the causes of the decline in the number of trials, and whether this phenomenon is a good or bad thing for the legal profession.
IMPORTANT: Seating is limited. There is no charge for the symposium which includes continental breakfast.
Registration Deadline: November 28, 2012
