Civil Rights Attorney to Speak on Campus
March 08, 2010
Paul M. Smith, a nationally renowned attorney at Jenner & Block LLP in Washington, DC, will speak at the law school on Monday, March 8, to kick off the American Constitution Society event series on Supreme Court jurisprudence of the last decade. Mr. Smith has argued 13 cases before the Court, including Lawrence v. Texas and Celotex Corp. v. Catrett. Lawrence v. Texas is the landmark gay rights case that overturned Texas’s anti-sodomy statute. Mr. Smith has been recognized as one of the best appellate and first amendment lawyers in the country for six years running by Best Lawyers in America - this is a do-not-miss event!
Presented by the student American Constitution Society, with special thanks to Dean Klonoff for his assistance in making this outstanding event happen. Co-Sponsored by the student organizations American Civil Liberties Union, National Lawyers Guild, Outlaw, and Minority Law Students Association.
