Beasley Allen Shareholder Gibson Vance, who is currently serving as President of the American Association for Justice, is a featured speaker and panelist at the National Lawyer’s Convention. This event is presented by The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies. Vance will speak on Saturday, Nov. 20, and will participate in a panel discussion on the topic “Ideas for Structural Change: Term Limits, Reviving the Right to Civil Jury Trial, Moving Administrative Law Judges to Article III, and Others.”
The theme for this year’s convention is “Controlling Government: The Framers, the Tea Parties and the Constitution.” The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be.
