The Jurisprudence and Legacy of the Honorable Joseph F. Weis Jr. 

Friday, March 17, 2023 | 9-5 p.m.

Teplitz Memorial Moot Courtroom, Barco Law Building, Pittsburgh, PA 15260 and via Zoom

The Honorable Joseph F. Weis Jr. was a judge on the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania from 1970 to 1973, and on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit from 1973 until his death in 2014. His forty years of jurisprudence had a wide-ranging impact on American law, and his stewardship of the 1990 Federal Courts Study Committee had a major impact on the institutional structure of the federal judiciary. This one-day conference, held at Judge Weis’s law school alma mater, will feature four panels of nationally renowned legal scholars addressing substantive topics where his impact has been most lasting. An intersession will provide students drawn from area high schools, universities, and law schools with an opportunity to engage and interact with panelists and the audience on topics that include the panels’ focus. 

  • PANEL 1: FEDERAL JURISDICTION AND THE LEGACY OF THE 1990 FEDERAL COURTS STUDY COMMITTEE
  • PANEL 2: EXTRATERRITORIALITY AND INTERNATIONAL COMITY ABSTENTION AFTER MANNINGTON MILLS
  • PANEL 3: IRREPRESSIBLE CIVILITY, PROFESSIONALISM, AND ETHICS IN DEFINING THE LAWYERING CAREER
  • PANEL 4: EFFECTIVE APPELLATE ADVOCACY: THE WEIS-GUY AND WEIS-GAL PERSPECTIVE

This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania CLE board for 5 hours of Substantive credit and 1 hour of Ethics credit. There will be a $160 fee for processing CLE credit for this event. This presentation is free to Pitt faculty, staff, and students. There is a $40 fee to all others not seeking CLE credit.
