Professor G. Robert Blakey delivered the keynote address at the 2014 Notre Dame Journal of Law, Ethics, and Public Policy symposium March 20.
The topic this year was White Collar Crime, and Professor Blakey, the William J. and Dorothy K. O’Neill Chair in Law Emeritus at Notre Dame Law School, is the nation’s foremost authority on the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act.
Symposium panelists included Dr. Cynthia Koller, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Shippensburg University; Dr. Gerald Cliff, Research Director at the National White Collar Crime Center; John Gallo, a partner at Sidley Austin LLP and an NDLS adjunct professor; and NDLS Professor Stephen Smith. NDLS Professor Jimmy Gurule moderated the program.
On March 19 three students from JLEPP presented papers on white collar crime. The papers, by Leslie Dickinson, Christina Sindoni, and Kristie Xian, will be published in the Journal’s symposium issue later this spring.
The Journal publishes two issues annually directed at an audience comprised of scholars, practitioners, and the general public. The Law School also offers a Program of Study in Law, Ethics, and Public Policy for students who are interested in pursuing an in-depth analysis of law and public policy from an ethical and moral perspective.
