The University of Alabama Law School will host the Law and Lies Symposium on Friday, where legal experts will address an array of topics from transparency in government, to necessary deception in the legal world. The conference will be held in Bedsole Moot Courtroom, Room 140, and 
begins at 8:30 a.m.

“The conference will explore various ways in which the law deals with deception, either through tolerance on the one hand or condemnation on the other,” said Montré Carodine, a professor at the University of Alabama Law School and a 
featured lecturer at the Symposium.

Carodine, who is scheduled to present an overview of the conference, constitutes just one of a long list of legal scholars that attendees will hear from during the course of the day.

“The backgrounds and interests of the scheduled speakers are diverse, which will certainly add to the richness of the program,” Carodine said.

Scheduled presenters in order of appearance include Mary Anne Franks, University of Miami School of Law; Norman Spaulding, Stanford Law School; William N. Eskridge, Yale Law School; Helen Norton, University of Colorado School of Law; and Stuart Green, Rutgers School of 
Law-Newark.

The conference will cover more than law procedure, however. Lecturers will delve into historical and political instances of large-scale lies and their importance in shaping the landscape of 
the future.

Carodine said that while the conference may initially appeal to lawyers and law students, anyone interested in the law and legal institutions is encouraged to attend.

Those interested in attending can register for free via law.ua.edu/resources/contact/register.
