Speakers include faculty from multiple regional law schools, a partner from the Philadelphia office of Pepper Hamilton LLP and a representative of the National Bar Association.

Attorneys who attend the program will be eligible for three continuing legal education credits in Delaware and Pennsylvania. New Jersey attorneys may self report for credit with a certificate of attendance. The cost to attend for credit is $60 or $50 for Widener Law alumni.

The Widener Journal of Law, Economics and Race is the first journal publication to be published jointly by the school’s Delaware and Harrisburg campuses. It provides a forum, entirely online, for in-depth analysis and academic discourse on issues involving the intersection of the law, race and economics.
