This sounds like an interesting program, especially in light of all the O.J. stuff. Gonzaga University School of Law is presenting a domestic abuse conference titled: “Stopping the Violence: Affecting Change Together.” Sponsored by the school’s Thomas More Scholarship Program, the conference will be held Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Ridpath Hotel in Spokane.
Speakers and panelists include Washington state Supreme Court Chief Justice Barbara Durham, Spokane County Superior Court Judge Kathleen O’Connor, attorney Paul Meissner, Carolyn Morrison of YWCA’s Alternatives to Domestic Violence, Robin Bale of Spokane Legal Services and Spokane County District Court Judge Richard White.
The conference is open to the public and continuing education credit is available for attorneys. For registration and fee information, call Marge Buck at (509) 328-4220, ext. 3725.
