Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia School of Law's Georgia Association of Law and Politics will host its second annual symposium on political and legal issues in Georgia Oct. 19 at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries on the UGA campus. Open to the public, the event will begin with lunch and opening remarks at 11:30 a.m., followed by the first panel session at 12:30 p.m.

"The purpose of this symposium is to provide law students, practitioners and members of the community at large with a more academic viewpoint of serious political and legal issues affecting the state of Georgia," conference co-organizer and second-year law student Shelley E. Kreimer said.

Topics to be covered are criminal justice reform, legislative ethics reform and the future of transportation initiatives in Georgia. Panelists will include leaders in the state's political, legal and judicial arenas.

For more information about the conference, contact Alan Poole at abp357@uga.edu. Reservations are required for the luncheon, and may be made by contacting lfarrar@uga.edu by Oct. 12.
