‘Georgia Law Review’ symposium will explore evidence reform

The School of Law’s student-edited legal journal, the Georgia Law Review, will present “Evidence Reform: Turning a Grotesque Structure into a Rational Edifice?” on Jan. 18 at 8 a.m. in the Larry Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall.

During this day-long symposium, evidence scholars from across the country will discuss Georgia’s new evidence code and will reflect upon the nationwide evidence reform movement as a whole. Although the event is open to the public, preregistration is encouraged because of limited seating.

The conference will include a keynote address by W. Ray Persons, litigation partner at King and Spalding and past chair of the State Bar of Georgia study committee on evidence reform. He will give an overview of the evidence reform process in Georgia and will provide insight into its impact on the day-to-day work of a trial lawyer.
