THE 2012 RANDOLPH W. THROWER SYMPOSIUM

INNOVATION FOR THE MODERN ERA:
LAW, POLICY, AND LEGAL PRACTICE IN A CHANGING WORLD

The Randolph W. Thrower Symposium is part of an endowed lecture series sponsored by Mr. Thrower's family and hosted by the Emory Law Journal and Emory University School of Law.

This year's Annual Randolph W. Thrower Symposium, titled Innovation for the Modern Era: Law, Policy, and Practice in a Changing World, will take place at Emory Law on Thursday, February 9, 2012.

The modern era can be characterized as one of enormous challenges and unprecedented change. Fueled in no small part by rapid technological innovation, the world in recent decades has experienced revolutionary developments across numerous sectors of society—from politics, to economics, to human health and the environment to name only a few. The legal system, itself historically averse to sudden, drastic change, has seemingly struggled to keep pace with these developments. Yet while change can be disruptive, it can also present opportunities to address existing problems in novel ways. To that end, the 2012 Randolph W. Thrower Symposium presented by the Emory Law Journal will bring together leading scholars and practitioners to examine how law, policy, and legal practice can adapt to meet some of the challenges we as a society are currently facing.

The Symposium is free and open to the public. For members of the Georgia Bar, it is an excellent and inexpensive opportunity to obtain CLE credit. The $60 registration fee covers five general CLE credits, parking, breakfast, lunch, and a reception after the event. The registration fee is waived for clerks and judges.

Online registration is now closed. Registration by check or cash is also available on the day of the symposium.
