Grand Jury Symposium in Portland on Wednesday

Wednesday May 4 at 6 pm in the Jefferson High School Auditorium (5210 N. Kerby Ave.), representatives of the Metropolitan Public Defender's Office, the District Attorney's Office, and the Multnomah County District Court will participate in a symposium on the Grand Jury System.

They will discuss (and answer audience questions about) why we have grand juries, how they work, and whether the grand jury system should be changed. The symposium is part of Community Law Week, an event sponsored by the Young Lawyers Section of the Multnomah County Bar Association.
