Separation of Powers in the Americas… and Beyond

Duquesne University and the School of Law will host Separation of Powers in the Americas and Beyond, an international seminar for lawyers.

With transnational legal issues becoming an increasingly important part of legal practice, the allocation of governmental authority is a fundamental aspect of many legal systems of countries in this hemisphere and in Europe. Separation of Powers in the Americas and Beyond will bring together distinguished justices, judges, advocates and law professors from the United States, Canada, Latin America and Europe for discussions of the roles played by the various branches of government in their respective legal systems.

Separation of Powers in the Americas and Beyond has been approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Board for up to 12 hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit. The seminar is presented in cooperation with the Inter-American Bar Association.

Seating is limited and registration deadline is Monday, Nov. 3. For more information, call at 412.396.6282.
