Talk – 'The United States Supreme Court in an Era of Constitutional Dynamism: A Conversation With Adam Liptak'

Monday, February 12, 2018 - 5:30pm

The James E. Rogers College of Law is pleased to invite you to an evening with New York Times Supreme Court Correspondent Adam Liptak. In a conversation format, Liptak will speak with UA professor Jason Kreag on the intersection of media, law and the Supreme Court. This event is hosted by the J. Byron McCormick Society for Law and Public Affairs.

Liptak's column on legal affairs, "Sidebar," appears in the Times every other Tuesday. A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Liptak practiced law at a large New York City law firm and in the legal department of The New York Times Company before joining the paper's news staff in 2002. Liptak was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting in 2009 and received the Scripps Howard Award for Washington reporting in 2010. He was awarded Hofstra University's Presidential Medal and an honorary doctorate from Stetson University College of Law. Liptak is a visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and an adjunct professor at New York University School of Law.

There is no cost to attend this event, and it is open to the public. A reception will follow the lecture.

Note: We expect Ares Auditorium to be filled to capacity and have planned for live-streaming in the adjacent Room 160. Members of the McCormick Society and their guests will be given priority seating in the auditorium; otherwise seating is first-come, first-served.
