Windsor Law to host annual conference of Canadian Association for Legal Ethics

Windsor Law will host jurists for discussion of issues relevant to the ethical provision of legal services and the proper regulation of the profession during the annual Canadian Association for Legal Ethics Conference, Oct. 25 and 26 in Windsor Hall.

Law professor Jasminka Kalajdzic says the topic is critical for a self-regulated profession.

“It is important that we — whether we are in private practice, in government agencies, or academics — regularly discuss and learn about ethics,” she says. “It is one way to reassure the public that we take seriously our duty to act with integrity.”

This is the first time Windsor will host the conference, which will feature three research panels, a teaching panel, and a panel on regulatory issues, well as the keynote address “Prosecutorial Independence during the Trump Administration” by professor Rebecca Roiphe of New York Law School.

Windsor Hall is located in downtown Windsor at 167 Ferry St. Students, faculty, and staff interested in legal ethics are encouraged to attend, but registration is limited:
