The Terrace Room at Lake Merritt Hotel
Keynote Speaker—The Honorable Phill Kline, former Attorney General of Kansas, whose distinguished prosecutorial record includes cases against Planned Parenthood and the late abortionist George Tiller. Phillip D. Kline joined the Liberty University School of Law in 2009. Prior to teaching at the law school, he served in Kansas as the Johnson County District Attorney where he managed over 8,500 criminal cases each year. Prior to this role he served as the Attorney General for the state of Kansas.
After completing his studies in political science and public relations, Kline earned his J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law where he served as Associate Editor of the Kansas Law Review and Editor of the Kansas Criminal Justice Review.
Aside from these accomplishments, almost all media attention regarding Kline has focused on abortion. His efforts have led the national abortion industry to pour millions of dollars into Kansas to attack and vilify him. Through it all, he continued to fight to enforce Kansas law and hold all accountable under the law. His leadership, as written by columnist Bob Novak, opened a new front on the abortion wars and placed Kansas in the epicenter of the current battle over the sanctity of human life.
Kline’s leadership was recognized by his selection as Chairman of the Republican Attorneys’ General Association, Co-Chairman of the National Violent Sexual Predator Apprehension Task Force, President of the Midwest Association of Attorneys General, Prosecutor of the Year for the National Alliance of the Mentally Ill, and Executive Committee Member of the National Association of Attorneys General.
Tickets to this year’s event are available for purchase or by scholarship. The scholarships are being offered in the hope of encouraging heroic pro-life youth who are advocating for life on their high school and college campuses.
