Two legal scholars will be visiting Marquette University Law School to talk about the state of the U.S. Supreme Court.
David Strauss of the University of Chicago and Ernest Young of Duke University will be discussing the U.S. Supreme Court in “On the Issues with Mike Gousha” at 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the Lubar Center at MU Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St., Milwaukee.
Gousha is a broadcast journalist and the Law School distinguished fellow in law and public policy. “On the Issues” is a series of conversations with newsmakers about matters of public interest. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Later that afternoon, Young will present MU Law School’s Boden Lecture, “Dying Constitutionalism and the Fourteenth Amendment,” at 4:30 p.m. in the Lubar Center, and Strauss will comment on the lecture. Although the lecture is sold-out for the public, people who are interested in attending can still register themselves on a waiting list.
Strauss, the Gerald Ratner Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, is an editor of the Supreme Court Review, has argued 19 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and is faculty director of the University of Chicago’s Jenner & Block Supreme Court and Appellate Clinic. He is a scholar of living constitutionalism.
Young, the Alston & Bird Professor of Law at Duke University, is a scholar of federalism, a former law clerk to Justice David Souter of the U.S. Supreme Court and the principal author of amicus curiae briefs in several recent Supreme Court cases.
