Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics Lectures

The Monroe H. Freedman Institute for the Study of Legal Ethics, founded in honor of one of the profession’s most influential legal scholars, seeks to focus the attention of law students, scholars, judges and practitioners on today’s most significant issues for the legal profession.

The Freedman Institute sponsors programs and conferences for scholarly inquiry and brings together practitioners, judges and scholars to examine critical aspects of the delivery of legal services. It also trains law students to take responsibility for serving others, and it provides practical experiences to do so.

Monroe Freedman taught generations of law students and implored colleagues to “make a difference.” The Freedman Institute seeks to enhance his legacy.
