Academic, Professional and CLE programs

The Stein Center regularly organizes and hosts CLE, academic and professional programs and events on ethics and regulation of the legal profession.  Please check back in the fall for program updates.

Legal Ethics Schmooze

The Stein Center annually co-sponsors and organizes the Criminal Justice Ethics Schmooze, a forum for junior and experienced faculty members to receive feedback on ideas and papers pertaining to ethics and the legal profession.

Specifically, the Schmooze provides a small number of scholars of various levels of experience who write in the area of criminal procedure and legal ethics a chance to consider and discuss emerging topics and ongoing scholarship on criminal procedure and professional conduct relating to prosecutors, defense lawyers and the institutions in which they work. In addition to collegial interchange, the Schmooze promotes future scholarship and provides some ideas about where such scholarship might take us.

Participation in the Criminal Justice Ethics Schmooze, which takes place in June at a NY-area law school, is by invitation only.
