Friday, April 20, 2012

Diederich College of Communication, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The inaugural Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event will focus on the relationship between corporations and society. What expectations do key stakeholders have for corporations as purveyors of social value and how do we communicate in ways that allow these stakeholders to understand and believe the ways corporates can and do meet these expectations.

The Corporate Communication Commons will provide an opportunity for corporate communication professionals to come together to consider how corporations embody social human values in ways that resonate with key stakeholders. The conference will consider issues that exist at the intersection of corporate identity, shared values and stakeholder trust.

To register for the Corporate Communication Commons Conference, please visit our registration page on the Marquette University website or email Meghan O’Leary at meghan.oleary@marquette.edu.

14.) Associate Dean for External Relations, University of Wisconsin Law School, Madison, WI

Website www.law.wisc.edu

Organization Profile The University of Wisconsin approach to legal education has been characterized by what we call “law in action.” This means different things to different members of our community. To some, it means scholarship that focuses on how law affects individuals in the real world. To others, it means experiential learning opportunities that provide for hands-on representation of live clients in real-life disputes. Still others might use the concept to encourage students in a large class to think together about how they would counsel a client with a particular problem in light of the applicable legal rule. What all of these approaches have in common is their focus on the way that law affects people and their communities. Our focus on law in action helps our students think about these issues and learn to be more effective and proactive advocates, counselors and advisers.

Our rich “Law in Action” tradition is an important part of who we are and it will remain an important part of who we become. It is still developing after all these years, empowering our graduates to navigate an increasingly complex, competitive, and challenging world. If you’d like to learn more about our legal tradition, the articles listed below will give you a place to start.
