COVID Response: All in-person and/or online programming will adapt with the most current health guidelines.
Jurisprudence vs. Law: What’s in a Word?
Time & Location
About The Event
Is it still possible to talk about the law and about lawyers as men and women whose desire and vocation is justice, whose interests go beyond honoraria and clients’ immediate “victories?" If not, was this ever the case. If it was, what happened? Dr. Orlandi will explore these questions with the eyes of a foreign-trained lawyer and by focusing on the role that the virtue of prudence might play in answering some, if not all of them.

About this year's theme for our programs:
Prudence: a Word, a Virtue, a Theme
This year, following the requests of our students, the Austin Institute has developed its academic programming around a common theme that will unify the activities of the semester.
The focus of our fall programming is on the most underestimated and yet most needed virtue of prudence.
Prudence will also guide our practical choices for our programs. All in-person and/or online programming conform to current health guidelines. We want to keep everyone safe while providing program opportunities during this pandemic.
