Robert A. Clifford Keynote Speaker at DePaul Law School Alumni Reception; Recipient of Distinguished Alumnus Award

Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner of Clifford Law Offices, is the 2022 keynote speaker at the DePaul University College of Law Annual Reception. Clifford also will be receiving the Distinguished Alumnus Award by DePaul University College of Law Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea.

The annual reception will be held Thursday, September 29, 2022, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the W Chicago-City Center Hotel, 172 W. Adams St. It is free of charge to attend for law school alumni, but registration is required. A guest is allowed for each alumnus. The deadline to register is Sept. 27.

Clifford graduated with a bachelor’s degree from DePaul University in 1973 and a J.D. from DePaul Law School in 1976. In 1994, he was honored with DePaul’s inaugural Outstanding Service to the Legal Profession Award. Nearly 30 years ago, Clifford endowed the Law School with the Clifford Symposium on Tort Law and Social Policy that annually gathers more than two dozen academics and experts on various areas of tort law that impacts consumers. Each speaker authors a paper that becomes part of a special DePaul Law Review, one of the most quoted publications on tort law in the country. The 2023 two-day program will be held at DePaul University on June 8-9, 2022.

Clifford also created the Clifford Scholar in Residence program which recognizes a talented rising star in civil litigation who then participates in classes and faculty activities within their areas of expertise. It culminates with a presentation to the entire DePaul community that features a response from a senior law commentator.

Clifford supports other numerous DePaul events, programs, and initiatives.
