OCU Law School to Host High-Profile Speakers


Record, Journal, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma City University School of Law will host two high- profile speakers in the coming weeks.

* On Nov. 10, for the school's annual Alumni and Friends Luncheon, the featured speaker will be Samuel M. Lohman of Geneva, Switzerland. This noon gathering in the Westin Hotel's Plaza Ballroom coincides with the Oklahoma Bar Association's annual meeting.

* Eight days later, Randy Barnett - the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Law at Boston University - will deliver the 2004-05 Brennan Lecture at 5 p.m. in the Homsey Family Moot Courtroom in the Sarkeys Law Center, at the corner of NW 23rd and N. Kentucky. The Nov. 18 lecture is free and open to the public.

Lohman, an Oregon native and a 1984 law graduate of OCU, is principle in Law Firm Lohman; president emeritus of The Offshore Institute, Isle of Man; and co-director of The Financial Services Institute, British Virgin Islands. He also chairs the supervisory board of the European Court of Arbitration and Mediation.

The topic of his luncheon address will be Anti-Money Laundering Compliance: Perils of Overzealous Reporting and Impact on Attorney/ Client Privilege. Advance registration is required. Tickets are $25. For reservations, contact Jackie Weekley, special events coordinator, by Nov. 5, either by phone at (405) 521-5197 or by e- mail to lawevents@okcu.edu.

Barnett, who successfully defended the California law in lower courts, will be the oralist in the Supreme Court.

As part of his preparation, on Nov. 18 Barnett will deliver a preliminary version of his oral argument before an OCU moot court and be questioned by a three-member panel of professors from the School of Law. This will mirror similar moot courts at Georgetown University and Harvard Law School. Details on the case can be found at http://angeljustice.org/.
