Loyola Law School's Fidler Institute on Criminal Justice

Loyola Law School hosted the fifth-annual Fidler Institute on Criminal Justice on Friday, April 8. This year's institute focused on cyberbullying, managing celebrity clients and trials, cutting-edge investigative techniques and developments in Miranda. The day was capped by a judges' reception and the presentation of the Fidler Awards.

"We were very excited about the amazing speakers and honorees who joined us," said Professor Laurie Levenson, organizer of the event and the David W. Burcham Professor of Ethical Advocacy. "From Lindsay Lohan's lawyer to a retiring California Supreme Court Justice, this year's Fidler program had it all. Attendees were treated to panel discussions on cutting-edge issues in criminal law, including cyberbullying, new developments in Miranda, investigative techniques and managing celebrity clients and trials. Finally, the program was topped off with a luncheon speaker by a death row warden who gave his perspective on the death penalty."
