A two-day public Symposium will be held at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles on Friday and Saturday, September 30 and October 1, 2005 . On Friday, September 30, a series of four panels and roundtables will address how we pay for civil justice-how citizens pay for lawyers, whether the "costs" of the system are being reflected in increased insurance liability rates, and controversies over the contingency fee. In addition, one panel will address judicial elections-and whether increasing politicization of the judging threatens the vaunted independence of our third branch of government. On Saturday, October 1, a group of distinguished lawyers and jurists will put the civil justice system on trial--for its life. Should we modify or abandon the civil justice system? 11 hours MCLE credit is available (see MCLE).
