Constitutional Studies Out West

As the Supreme Court takes a winter break and the Obama team gets settled in at the DOJ, I’ll be on the road giving speeches and debating several of the most pertinent legal topics facing the incoming administration.   Here’s the schedule for my upcoming trip to California and Hawaii, which starts tomorrow. All events are open to the public (though the non-law school events typically charge admission):

  • University of San Diego Law School (Warren Hall Rm. 133), February 4 at 12pm – “Judicial Nominations: What’s Gone Wrong and Can It Be Fixed?”
  • University of San Francisco Law School (Kendrick Hall Rm. 101), February 5 at 12:30pm – ”What Can We Expect from the Obama Administration on Judicial Appointments?”
  • North Coast Federalist Society Lawyers Chapter (904 MacDonald Ave., Santa Rosa), February 5 at 7pm – “Libel Tourism: The Next Front in the War on Terror”
  • Princeton Club of N. California (Gordon & Rees, Embarcadero Ctr., SF), February 6 at 12pm – “How I Spent My Summer Vacation: Rule of Law in Iraq”
