The 2014 Santoro Lecture in Pictures

Posted by Michael Yelnosky on 10/17/2014 at 01:33 PM

On September 18th, Gerry Riskin delivered the 3rd Anthony J. Santoro Business Law Lecture. Riskin directed the attention of the lawyers in the packed house to the disruptive changes in law practice taking place all around them, and he made provocative predictions about truly revolutionary changes on the horizon. The Providence Business News described our decision to make disruption in the market for legal services the subject of the lecture as evidence that we are “acutely aware of the changes afoot.” In this, as in so many other ways, we are preparing our students for the future, not for the past.

Here are some pictures from an important and engrossing evening.
