Berkeley Law and the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology will be hosting an event to honor the career and impact (so far!) of our dear colleague Pamela Samuelson. The event will be held at Berkeley’s beautiful University Club at the California Memorial Stadium on Friday, November 3, 2023. We’ll start at 9:00 AM and finish at 6:30 PM (following celebratory toasts and cake!). We are excited to announce that registration for this event is now open, with limited space available.
Judge Pierre Leval of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit will give the lunchtime keynote address. The rest of the day will be organized around panels corresponding to different aspects of Pam’s scholarship and impact.
Discounted nightly room rates are available at the nearby Graduate Hotel. Click here to reserve a room at the discount.
This event is not to be missed! We hope to see you in November.
