Judges and lawyers from around the country gathered at the OU College of Law April 11-12 for the spring meeting of the U.S. Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on Civil Rules. This committee oversees the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and develops proposals for new and amended rules.
The spring meeting drew special attention from the bar this year as the advisory committee agenda included several hot button topics ranging from discovery reform to spoliation sanctions for the loss of electronically stored information.
The two-day meeting was hosted by OU Law and organized by Professor Steve Gensler, who served as a member of the advisory committee from 2005 to 2011. “This was a tremendous opportunity to bring some of the most prominent judges and lawyers in the country to the College of Law,” said Gensler. “In addition to helping them with their work, we were able to expose our students to a vital area of legal reform and show our visitors some of the great things we have going on here.” In recognition of the event, President David L. Boren hosted a special reception at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and a dinner at the newly-renovated University Club in Oklahoma Memorial Union.
