The Center for American and International Law has a number of events planned throughout the year to mark its 75th anniversary. The nonprofit center, located at 5201 Democracy Drive, Plano, offers continuing education opportunities for lawyers and law enforcement officials throughout the nation and the globe.

"When Dean Robert G. Storey founded CAIL in 1947, it was the first legal center of its kind in the United States," CAIL President T.L. Cubbage said in a statement. "In the 75 years since, CAIL's programs, research, conferences, publications and events have not only held the industry to a higher standard but have also indirectly impacted thousands of communities domestically and abroad. We look forward to celebrating this milestone year while also building on our vision to ensure CAIL's impact is felt for generations to come."

As part of its anniversary festivities, the center is holding a fundraising campaign to help support future research, special programs, publications and more. It is also planning to publish a limited-edition book compilation of essays and documents that showcase the institute's history, evolving goals and achievements from the past 75 years. The center has also scheduled its 75th anniversary gala for Oct. 19, with plans to bring in a keynote speaker for the event.

The center's 75th anniversary website features podcasts, blogs, articles and more. Since its founding, the center has served lawyers and law enforcement officers from all 50 states and 130 countries, according to a news release. 972-244-3400.
