Detroit Mercy Law hosts Law Review Centennial Symposium, March 4

The Law Review Centennial Symposium — focusing on the past, present, and future legal issues facing the city of Detroit — will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 4, on the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law campus.

The symposium will feature legal professionals and scholars from the city of Detroit and across the country to discuss legal issues confronted throughout Detroit’s history, its current issues, and issues that may arise in the future. Confirmed speakers include:

• Michael E. Duggan – keynote address (mayor, City of Detroit).

• U.S. District Court Chief Judge Gerald E. Rosen, Eastern District of Michigan.

• Eugene A. Gargaro Jr. (’67) (Detroit Mercy Law alumnus, member of the University’s Board of Trustees, and Chair, Board of Directors, Detroit Institute of Arts) to discuss the grand bargain that helped resolve Detroit’s bankruptcy.

The Law Review has been devoted to discussing issues facing the Detroit community since its inception in 1916. It is fitting that for the centennial Symposium the Law Review will pay homage to its roots and motivation: the city of Detroit.

The Law Review is a student publication that discusses legal issues facing Detroit, the State of Michigan, and the United States, and finding practical solutions.
