Fidler Institute on Criminal Justice

Each year the Fidler Institute on Criminal Justice addresses hot-button topics with nationally renowned members of the legal community.

Founded by Professor Laurie Levenson (pictured far left), the Fidler Institute encourages innovative conversation and ideas as a way to move toward a positive solution. The annual day-long symposia was named after prominent Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Larry Fidler '74 (pictured far right). 

The 2013 annual symposia was no different; renowned panelists discussed the state of the California prison system, drones and high-tech surveillance, white collar prosecutions, pot shops and more. The Fidler Award Honorees were awarded to (from second to left) Prosecutor of the Year Patrick R. Dixon, Defense Counsel of the Year Janet Levine '80 and Judge of the Year Hon. Jacqueline A. Connor. The day concluded with a Judges Reception held at the law school.
