   About Our Keynote Speaker

Our Guest of Honour this year is David Rudolf.  David Rudolf is an American criminal defense attorney passionate about fighting for the individual against the power of the government. Rudolf founded his law firm in 1982 to represent the rights of people, and the firm has never wavered from that mission. 

Rudolf came to national prominence for defending Michael Peterson in his initial murder trial, which was chronicled in the 2004 miniseries The Staircase, now on Netflix with new follow-up episodes.

This is not only an opportunity to hear from David Rudolf in-person in Vancouver, but is also a collegial event where you can socialize with Crown, Defence and Judges alike. Past participants say “it is an annual event well worth attending.”

From the words of Mr. Rudolf, read about his journey from Federal Defender in Brooklyn to  starting the Criminal Law Clinic at the University of North Carolina School of Law, to starting his own  my own firm in 1982 with a colleague from Duke Law School. Also read about his passion for the arts.
