The year 2016 was the quincentennial of Thomas More's Utopia. UTOPIA500 was an interdisciplinary series of events honoring the author and his iconic work, organized by Distinguished Professor Michael Malloy. The entire University and Law School community was cordially invited to these UTOPIA500 events, held during the meetings of the Law and Literature seminar.

Presentations in UTOPIA500 were included in the publication of a symposium issue of the University of the Pacific Law Review in the Fall of 2016.
