LAW, LITERATURE & PHILOSOPHY SEMINAR AND RETREAT | TUSCANY, ITALY | JUNE 24-26, 2013
In the summer of 2013, we are once again returning to Tuscany our 7th seminar in the Val d'Orcia region. This year, we will explore the relationship between law, literature and philosophy. We will continue to use classic and contemporary works, as we discuss readings focused on law and morality. This year's seminar will also include a timely discussion of shifting cultural mores and the law as we debate the U.S. Supreme Court case of Hollingsworth v. Perry. Last, the issues of presidential power will be contemplated in the context of the War Powers Act and the use of drones. The seminar promises to quite though provoking and provide for a reawakening of your Renaissance spirit. Mark your calendar for June 24-26, 2013 and plan to spend a stimulating week in the Val d'Orcia region. Please contact Julie Palermo for additional details.

THE ANNUAL JUSTICE INSTITUTE FOR THE LEGAL PROFESSION SEMINAR | NEWARK, OHIO | DATES NOT YET FINALIZED
Bringing together experienced members of the Ohio bench, bar and academy, we will meet again this fall for an intensive discussion designed to deepen the understanding of legal ethics and professionalism. As we have done in the past, the discussions will center around classic and contemporary "Great Readings" from literature, history and philosophy. Our accomplished facilitators will probe and challenge our participants as they revisit the values and aspirations that brought each to the law. As always, we are looking forward to passionate debates and interesting dialogue.

Various Law Firms
As we have done in the past, we are presenting seminars to various law firms and legal associations throughout Ohio. Each seminar is designed for the organization's culture and the areas that they wish to explore. These seminars are presented at a fraction of the cost of traditional CLE's and have the benefit of improving communication among attorneys, increasing morale, and providing an intellectual challenge for all attorneys.
