The Profession and the Academy:
Addressing Major Changes in Law Practice

Wednesday, April 28, 2010
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
500 West Baltimore Street
Baltimore, MD

In recent years, there have been profound changes at every level of practice. This symposium will bring together leading law professors, scholars, lawyers, and bar leaders to consider:

  • What have been the most significant changes in the legal profession in recent years?
  • Can we generalize about the impact these changes are having on the behavior of lawyers (including ethical behavior)?
  • How should law schools respond to these changes and their implications?
Participants will discuss wide-spread changes in very large law firms; changes in middle-size and small firms (including solo practices); the ways in which these changes are influencing the behavior, including ethical practices, of lawyers; and how law schools might respond to these changes in their curricula, programs, and initiatives.

Symposium Agenda

Recognizing the importance of this discussion, the Maryland Law Review plans to devote an issue of the review to the papers that the Symposium produces.

If you have any questions concerning the Symposium that are not answered here, please do not hesitate to contact Maura DeMouy at

The School of Law is indebted to the Fetzer Institute for its strong support and partnership in developing the School's Leadership, Ethics and Democracy Initiative.
