U.S. District Court Judge William H. Orrick III: The Continuing Role of Justice in our Federal Court System

SPEAKERS
Judge William H. Orrick III | U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
Thomas McInerney | Shareholder, Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart

Robert Kennedy said that the obligations of lawyers “go far deeper than earning a living as specialists in corporation or tax law. They have a continuing responsibility to uphold the fundamental principles of justice from which the law cannot depart.”

Today, there is an increasing national focus on the role that lawyers and our legal system play in society. At the same time, a segment of our population views the judiciary with suspicion as partisan actors in an increasingly divided country. How has the legal system changed over the last 20 years? And do lawyers and the courts continue to uphold the fundamental principles of justice for all Americans that Robert Kennedy espoused, including for the most vulnerable in our society?

Come join U.S. District Court Judge William H. Orrick III in a candid conversation about these and other legal issues as he offers his insights into today’s justice system. *Please note earlier start time.
