The Law & Society Symposium provides historical observations and trends, insights into associated legal issues and processes, and suggestions for change from varied perspectives.

This year’s symposium will bring together leading experts in law, medicine, academia, and advocacy to discuss the complexities and nuance of sexual abuse and exploitation law. Speakers and panelists will navigate new developments in the law, procedural issues in criminal and civil cases, as well as robust conversations related to advocacy, reformation, and legislative efforts at a national and state level.
