RSVP FOR LAW SCHOOL ‘ROCK STAR’ ERWIN CHEMERINSKY SPEECH AT THE U
Feb. 4, 2016 |5:30-7:30 p.m.
S.J. Quinney College of Law, 6th floor moot courtroom
He’s the closest thing the law school circuit has to a rock star. And now Erwin Chemerinsky is headed to the University of Utah, scheduled to speak Feb.4 as part of the 50th Annual Leary Lecture at the S.J. Quinney College of Law. Chemerinsky is a well-known professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law. Previously, he taught at Duke Law School for four years, during which he won the Duke University Scholar-Teacher of the Year Award in 2006. He also taught for 21 years at the University of Southern California School of Law, UCLA School of Law and DePaul University College of Law. His areas of expertise are constitutional law, federal practice, civil rights and civil liberties, and appellate litigation. He is the author of eight books, including The Case Against the Supreme Court published in 2014, and more than 200 articles in top law reviews. He frequently argues cases before the nation’s highest courts, including the United States Supreme Court, and also serves as a commentator on legal issues for national and local media. He writes a weekly column for the Orange County Register, monthly columns for the ABA Journal and the Daily Journal, and frequent op-eds in newspapers across the country. In January 2014, National Jurist magazine named Chemerinsky as the most influential person in legal education in the United States. His lecture is expected to be a huge draw at the U for the legal community, where he’ll reflect on the last half century of constitutional law. He is available for media interviews prior to his visit. Those interested in attending can RSVP here.
