The Bill Daniels Rocky Mountain Ethics & Law Forum | Boulder, Colo.

Speakers and Panelists: TBA

The University of Colorado Law School is collaborating with the University of Wyoming Law School to host the inaugural Rocky Mountain Law and Ethics Forum in Boulder, Colorado on Friday, April 10, 2020. The Forum will consist of keynote speakers, a panel discussion, and a networking lunch featuring the recognition of two individuals (one from Colorado and one from Wyoming) for their commitment to ethical leadership in the legal profession. The event is geared toward attorneys, business leaders, university representatives and students.

The topic for this year’s Forum is higher education admissions.  Recent high profile cases on the subject - including the Varsity Blues admissions scandal and the affirmative action case at Harvard - raise a variety of fascinating legal and ethical issues.  Joining us to discuss those issues will be professionals directly involved in such cases, as well as a panel of university counsel, admissions officers, and athletic directors to address how those cases have impacted the admissions landscape more broadly.

Sponsored by: Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative & University of Colorado - Boulder School of Law
The University of Colorado and the University of Wyoming are members of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program, a consortium of 11 universities in the Rocky Mountain region that are committed to making principle-based ethics education a high priority.
