Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to attend the Beatty Jurist-in-Residence lecture at 5 p.m. on Oct. 30 in the SIU School of Law Courtroom. For more information, contact Michael Ruiz, assistant dean for Career, Alumni, and Promotional Services, at mikeruiz@siu.edu or 618/453-8763.


During his week at the law school, Murphy will visit classes and meet with faculty. He will also participate as chief judge for the final round of the law school’s annual National Health Law Moot Court competition on Nov. 2.

“The goal of the Beatty Jurist-in-Residence program is to give SIU law students the opportunity to interact with a distinguished jurist and to learn more about the experiences and perspectives of the judiciary,” Dean Cindy Buys said. “SIU Law is proud to have more than 140 judges among its alumni, a remarkable record for such a ‘young’ law school. Being exposed to judges and learning from them about how their legal careers progressed allows our students to imagine that career path for themselves.”
