In this week's Letter of the Law we spotlight the accomplishments of longtime Phoenix trial attorney Gary L. Stuart ('67), an honoree at the  42nd Annual LCA Appreciation Dinner . This Saturday's dinner at the Arizona Historical Society Museum in Mesa promises to be a memorable evening under the stars, honoring Gary and this year's five other esteemed award winners. 

We are also proud to announce the Arizona Law Review's publication of the Jean Braucher Symposium in honor of Professor Braucher's far-reaching scholarly contributions.

Until the footnotes,
