PIPS Symposium Welcomes Keynoter Ben Campbell Today
Oregon Law’s Public Interest Public Service program (PIPS) will host its annual fall semester symposium at 12:20 p.m. Friday, September 17, in the Knight Law Center’s Wayne Morse Commons. This year’s symposium will explore the different settings for the practice of public interest law.
Ben Campbell, the former U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, will deliver the symposium’s keynote address. Campbell earned notoriety for his role in prosecuting organized and corporate crimes, including serving on the team that prosecuted Enron Corporation in 2006. He also drafted sentencing guidelines as a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission.
The day also will include four panel discussions, following the keynote, that will focus on particular settings for the practice of public interest law: criminal law, education law, environmental law, and civil rights law.
The day’s keynote address is free and open to the public. For additional information and to RSVP for the symposium, contact Vincci Lam.
