Symposium to Honor Professor Weyrauch for 51 Years of Service Sept. 29
Walter Weyrauch This symposium, which marks and honors Professor Walter Weyrauch’s 51 years of service as a member of the faculty at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, will provide an opportunity for noted scholars and friends of Professor Weyrauch to reflect upon his intellectual legacy. Those with a special connection to Professor Weyrauch are encouraged to attend.
“Professor Weyrauch has been an exceptional teacher and respected and highly productive scholar at this institution for more than 51 years, which is a record of continuous service at one law school which is rarely achieved by anyone anywhere in the nation,” said Levin College of Law Dean Robert Jerry. “This symposium will allow us to examine and honor his impressive body of work and bring it to the attention of a new generation of law students.”
This symposium will provide an opportunity for noted scholars and friends of Professor Weyrauch to reflect upon his academic contributions. Participants will make oral comments on facets of Professor Weyrauch’s work. There is no requirement or expectation of a pre-symposium written work by participants, although the College would be most willing to receive any such writings for distribution at or prior to the symposium.
In addition, the Florida Law Review dedicated their April issue to Professor Weyrauch, which will include an article by Lynn M. LoPucki, Security Pacific Bank Professor of Law, UCLA School of Law, and Bruce W. Nichols Visiting Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, in honor of the distinguished professor.
The symposium will be held on Sept. 29, 2008 from 9 – 11 a.m. in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom (180 Holland). The symposium is open to the public.
