05:00PM - 06:00PM Tenley Campus - Warren NT01 Ceremonial Classroom

Join us for the SCOTUS series panel discussion and reception on Rimini Street Inc. v. Oracle USA Inc.  AUWCL regularly invites counsel of record and counsel for selected amici to offer post-argument reflections in intellectual property (and related) cases heard by the Supreme Court.  PIJIP hosts these events on the afternoon of oral argument before the Court.  This panel will discuss the issue: whether the Copyright Act’s allowance of “full costs,” 17 U.S.C. § 505, to a prevailing party is limited to taxable costs under 28 U.S.C. §§ 1920 and 1821, as the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 8th and 11th Circuits have held, or whether the act also authorizes non-taxable costs, as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit held.

Livestream will be available at: https://youtu.be/7XDnhR_swcw

Public Interest Roundtable Series: Public Interest and Big Law

12:00PM - 01:00PM Tenley Campus - Warren N101 Classroom

 Did you come to law school because you want to make a difference, but are now considering a career at a law firm? Did you always want to work at a law firm, but want to learn how lawyers make pro bono work a significant part of their practice? What do pro bono attorney at firms do? What issues do they work on? How can I identify law firms that genuinely support pro bono service? Is it possible to transition out of big law and into public interest work after working at a firm? How can I talk about my desire to do pro bono work during interviews like OCI without raising questions about my interest in the firm? Are there specific programs that can help put me on the right path? Join us for lunch with Lisa Dewey (WCL'93), Pro Bono Partner at DLA Piper and Director of New Perimeter; and Scott D. Johnson (WCL'10), Counsel at Akin Gump, to get answers to your questions and more! Mr. Johnson will also specifically talk about Akin Gump's Pro Bono Scholars Program (deadline: Feb. 15, 2019).
