The 12th annual Fidler Institute on Criminal Justice symposium at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles on April 27 hosted and awarded top attorneys and judges with a day of panels tackling several hot-button issues and a reception.

U.S. Attorney Nicola Hanna of the Central District of California and Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey were featured speakers at the event. Fidler Award recipients included Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer and Vicki Podberesky, partner at Andrues/Podberesky.

Panels focused on the sexual assault prosecutions that sparked the #MeToo movement, political corruption and the Robert Mueller investigation on Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and marijuana law developments.

The institute and award are named after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry P. Fidler, a 1974 Loyola Law graduate.
