Law Symposium Schedule 2016The annual Kenneth W. Street Law Symposium invites lawyers, Austin College students, and others interested in the law profession to campus for discussion of timely issues in law and ethics. The event honors Austin College Professor Emeritus Kenneth W. Street. A professor of political science at Austin College from 1959 to 1997, Dr. Street held the John D. Moseley Chair of Government and Public Policy and founded and directed the Social Science Laboratory. An award-winning teacher, he also served many years as the advisor for students considering careers in law and launched many professionals in the field.


The 2016 Kenneth W. Street Law Symposium has been set for Friday, February 19. This year's topic is "Legal Ethics and Texas Legal Practice; Persisting Principles, New Realities," featuring the Honorable Royal Ferguson as keynote luncheon speaker. Judge Ferguson served as federal district judge for 17 years and is founding dean of the UNT Dallas College of Law. The 2016 law symposium also will feature morning and afternoon panels, and details of the sessions and CEU credits will be announced in mid-January.


The law symposium is organized by the Alumni “L” Law Association and Austin College Pre-Law Society, under the direction of Dr. Frank Rohmer, associate professor of political science. Each year’s outstanding line-up of panelists is made possible through the generosity of donors, the Hatton S. Sumners Foundation, and Austin College Student Assembly.
