Rehnquist to give keynote address at law conference

Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist will address law students, faculty, alumni and guests at a two-day program, “Law Schools, Lawyers and the Future of American Law,” at the School of Law Oct. 26-27. The program, free and open to the public, celebrates the 175th anniversary of the Law School.

Rehnquist, who was appointed chief justice of the United States by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, will deliver the keynote address at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Law School’s Caplin Auditorium.

“We’re gathering conference participants from all branches of the profession — judges, practitioners, clients and deans — to craft an agenda for the future of the law school,” said John C. Jeffries Jr., U.Va. Law School dean. “Our question to them is, how should legal education change in the 21st century? The conference is not just for academics; instead, we want to set educational priorities for an institution dedicated, first and foremost, to training lawyers.”
