CLE: “The Supreme Court Inside and Out”

The Oregon State Bar’s Business Litigation Section is pleased to present a distinguished panel to discuss the ins and outs of preparing and presenting argument before the U.S. Supreme Court and the unique decision-making process that results in precedents that impact us all.

When:  Wednesday, November 11, 2015
5:00 – 5:30 P.M. Reception
5:30 – 6:30 CLE Program

Where: Red Star Tavern
503 SW Alder Street
Portland, Oregon 97204

It is the highest court in the land and the court of last resort for the privileged few whose legal issues are lofty and consequential enough for the Court to consider. There are unwritten rules of etiquette and an expectation of advocacy at its most polished.

The panel includes Oregon Supreme Court Justice Rives Kistler who is a former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell; Jeff Lamken, a partner at Molo Lamken in Washington D.C, who is a former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Conner and a former Assistant Solicitor General who has argued 21 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court; and Steve Wilker, a partner at Tonkon Torp who argued a case before the U.S. Supreme Court last year.

Registration details are below the jump.
