Kennedy Lecture Re-Scheduled for Nov. 13

The Kennedy Lecture, featuring Jeffrey Toobin has been rescheduled to a new date of November 13.

The Kennedy Lecture, featuring CNN legal analyst and bestselling author, Jeffrey Toobin, has been rescheduled for November 13.

The Kennedy Lecture, now in its tenth year, is designed to promote discussion of cutting-edge issues affecting the U.S. Supreme Court and the Constitution. The program was established with the approval of Justice Anthony Kennedy when he visited the law school in the fall of 2008.

A high-profile legal analyst for CNN and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin is one of the country’s most esteemed experts on politics, media and the law. With unparalleled journalistic skill, Toobin has provided analysis on some of the most provocative and important events of our time. The author of critically acclaimed best sellers, Toobin delved into the historical, political and personal inner workings of the Supreme Court and its justices in his books The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court and The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court.

Previously, Toobin served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Brooklyn. He also served as an associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Lawrence E. Walsh, an experience that provided the basis for his first book, Opening Arguments: A Young Lawyer’s First Case—United States v. Oliver North.

Toobin received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard College and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

The lecture was originally scheduled in late September, but due to his obligations to CNN as it covered the Kavanaugh Senate confirmation hearing, Jeffrey Toobin postponed his visit to the Lewis & Clark Law School.  It was re-scheduled for November 13.

CLE Credit:  This program has applied for one General MCLE Credit through the Oregon State Bar.
