The symposium, which is titled "The Federal Judiciary: Its Procedure and Purpose", will be split up into two panel sessions before lunch followed by two panel sessions after lunch. All panel sessions are being held at the Law School. The symposium will address a report issued last spring by the Federal Courts Study Committee, which conducted the most extensive review of the federal court system since the court's inception. Based on the findings of this committee, the symposium will discuss such topics as the propriertorship of judicial sanctions, sentencing of criminals, and criteria for the apppointment of federal judges, according to symposium organizers. Registration for the symposium will take place on Saturday morning at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and is free to all members of the University community. -- Ed Miller
