The 7th Circuit Bar Association is celebrating the Lincoln bicentennial with a one-day symposium in Chicago open to the public. Those who can't make it to Chicago will be able to watch it from Indianapolis.

Abraham Lincoln experts and constitutional scholars will explore Lincoln's trial lawyer days and his use of war powers as president of the United States in the symposium, "Abraham Lincoln: His Legal Career and His Vision for America." The original Dred Scott Petition for Freedom will also be displayed at the event. Those interested in attending the Feb. 6 event at the Preston Bradley Hall in Chicago's Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington St., need to register in advance at http://www.7thcircuitbar.org. The program can also be viewed via webcast at the Indiana Continuing Legal Education Forum Conference Facility, 230 E. Ohio St., 5th Floor, Indianapolis. Doors open at 9 a.m. For more information about the symposium, contact Frank Martin at (312) 329-3980 or martinf@plannedtvarts.com.
