Candidates and Moderator in the CWRU Mayors Forum via Zoom

Every year, CWRU School of Law hosts conferences and lectures open to students, alumni and the public on a wide range of legal topics.

Undeterred by the pandemic, the Law School hosted 39 events online in the past year. Most events had 200-300 attendees, about three times the audience in-person events attracted in the past. The total attendance for the events from fall 2020 through spring 2021 was 7,237.

The events covered a wide range of topics from business law to trade law, from reproductive rights to climate change, and from social justice to international war crimes. The school hosted the American Society of International Law’s tenth annual midyear meeting and the first forum for Cleveland’s mayoral candidates (pictured above).

Events since January 1, 2021, are available for free Ohio CLE credit. Most of the events are archived for on-demand viewing.

Starting in September 2021, most of the Law School’s events will once again be in-person, with simultaneous webcasting. The diverse lineup of upcoming events will be regularly updated.
