The 20th Annual Clifford Symposium will feature a special address by Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer of the Supreme Court of the United States at DePaul University College of Law. The two-day program, April 24-25, is entitled “Judge Jack Weinstein’s Impact on Civil Justice in America.” Judge Weinstein is a federal judge in the Eastern District of New York. He was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1967 and has authored numerous significant opinions on a broad range of topics in civil justice, from torts and civil procedure to the law of evidence. This program will examine his 45 years on the bench that has led him to be considered one of the most renowned judges in the history of the federal judiciary. Robert A. Clifford and Clifford Law Offices, a nationally recognized personal injury firm, established the symposium through a generous endowment two decades ago in the belief of providing a vehicle for exploring the civil justice system in an intellectually rigorous fashion.
