Judith Wegner, the Burton Craige Professor of Law at UNC School of Law, will discuss “Developing Professional Identities During Law School.” The event is being sponsored by three law schools: in addition to Rutgers, the Temple University Beasley School of Law, and the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law are participating. The program is being funded by the Shelter Foundation.
The free event is intended to raise awareness to the teaching of the core values of the legal profession, is especially focused to be useful to faculty, no matter their area of expertise, and is further open to any who wish to learn more and add to the discussion.
A long-time member of the Carolina Law faculty, Professor Wegner served as its dean from 1989 to 1999. During the mid-2000's, she used a research leave to serve as a senior scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. There she was the principal investigator on the Foundation’s major study on legal education, part of its “Program on Preparation for the Professions.”
The event will take place in the faculty lounge, located on the fourth floor of the Law School Building. Lunch will be provided. Law students and members of the public interested in attending must RSVP to Donald K. Joseph.
