Students talk inside while wearing masks

We're committed to our alumni and friends and proud to offer a variety of programming opportunities throughout the academic year. Our Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs and our new 3 Points in .3 Discussion Series are ways that Nebraska faculty and distinguished guests share their efforts to address current legal issues through legal research and scholarship. Outside of presentation-style opportunities, the Attorney-Student Mentor Program focuses on maximizing the Nebraska Law experience, professional goal-setting, and developing a professional network for the student. These experiences are all wonderful opportunities to connect with the Nebraska Law community of students, faculty and fellow alumni.

Our current programming opportunities are offered both in person and remotely via Zoom video conferencing. Per the Lancaster County Health and Human Services Departmant, masks are required inside the building, regardless of vaccination status.

Jon Bruning Public Service Lecture with Attorney General Karl Racine - November 5

Former Attorney General Jon C. Bruning, '74, created the lecture series to provide an opportunity to focus on the significance of dedicating all or part of one's career to public service. This year's speaker is Attorney General Karl Racine, whose who aims to expand work on priorities, including preserving affordable housing, employing evidence-based juvenile justice reforms, cracking down on slumlords, holding unscrupulous employers accountable for wage theft, and protecting consumers from scams and abusive business practices.

We expect this program to be approved for for 1.0 continuing education credit in Nebraska. 


Nebraska State Capitol Buildling

Direct Democracy Symposium - November 13

The reason for this symposium is Nebraska’s experience with our direct-democracy provisions, found in our state constitution. While the main culprit of our recent angst is the single-subject rule, this is but a piece of a larger puzzle related to the role of direct-democracy provisions in state government.

This symposium will be available remotely via Zoom and in-person at the College of Law. Instructions for connecting remotely will be distributed the week of the symposium.

This program has been approved for 4.0 continuing education credits in Nebraska.
