This January, GGU Law celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Golden Gate University Law Review. Established in 1969, The Law Review publishes scholarly writing on a broad range of legal topics, including constitutional law, immigration law, criminal procedure, and more. On January 24, we acknowledge this milestone with The Annual Chief Justice Ronald M. George Distinguished lecture which features a discussion with GGU Law alumna the Honorable Morgan Brenda Christen (JD ’86), Judge at the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. A reception in the Grand Hall of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will follow.
