The Mercer Center has sponsored a series of symposia related to various issues of ethics and professionalism. Most of these programs have been funded by Judge Lawson’s 1999 order in the Du Pont litigation as part of the annual Georgia symposia on ethics and professionalism. Mercer, the University of Georgia, Emory University, and Georgia State University rotate the presentation of these programs.
The symposia include:
Ethics and Professionalism in Settlement Negotiations (2001)
Lessons from Enron (2003)
Judicial Ethics and Professionalism in a New Era of Judicial Selection (2004)
Ethics and Professionalism in the Digital Age (2008)
Defining and Enforcing the Federal Prosecutor’s Duty to Disclose Exculpatory Evidence (2012)
