About This Event

The Clarke Family Prize in Legal Ethics CLE is an annual Continuing Legal Education event focusing on the topic of professional responsibility. The Clarke Prize program itself originates in the Harvey and Harriet Clarke Fund for Professionalism and Ethics. Harvey Clarke was a well-respected jurist, and the Clarke family was deeply involved in the Spokane, Washington community. Consistent with the Clarke family’s values, the Clarke fund was endowed in 1980 to support Gonzaga Law’s commitment to promoting legal ethics for both law students and lawyers.
