McGeorge Announces 2004-05 Distinguished Speaker Series

September 14, 2004

This academic year we celebrate our 80th anniversary theme — “80 Years of Doing Justice to the Teaching and Practice of Law”— and mark the 12th year of our Distinguished Speakers Series with presentations on four critical issues challenging legal practitioners and law faculty alike. Our distinguished speakers will address the social and medical impact of health insurance savings accounts; the legality of biopiracy — corporate patents on indigenous medical and cosmetic remedies that have been used for centuries in poor countries; the assumption that directors and officers of banks are subject to higher fiduciary duty than their corporate counterparts; and prosecutorial limits to international white collar crime.
