I’m inviting you to join Constitutional Accountability Center, the Center for American Progress, and the American Constitution Society for a fascinating discussion of Justice Samuel Alito’s first decade on the U.S. Supreme Court.
January 31st marks the 10th anniversary of Justice Alito’s confirmation to the Court. As many legal commentators have noted, the confirmation of the ultra-conservative Alito was one of the most impactful in recent history.
With a decade’s worth of data, Constitutional Accountability Center is joining with the Center for American Progress and the American Constitution Society to host a panel of legal experts who will explore Justice Alito’s contributions in moving the law to the right in several key areas, including campaign finance, abortion, and the right to unionize. Our panelists will also examine Alito’s emerging role as the leader of the Court’s conservative bloc, as well as how he compares — both in his approach and rulings — to Chief Justice John Roberts, President George W. Bush’s other appointee to the high court.
The panel will feature CAC’s own Appellate Counsel, Brianne Gorod, who will be joined by Theodore Shaw, Professor of Law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and William Yeomans, Professor of Law at American University. The panel will be moderated by Slate Senior Editor Dahlia Lithwick, and will include opening remarks from CAP Vice President of Legal Progress Michele Jawando and ACS President Caroline Fredrickson.
If you are in the Washington D.C. area, we welcome you to join us in person at noon on February 4th for a light lunch and an exciting panel. For those who can’t make it in person, you can stream the event live from CAP’s website. See below for the full event and RSVP details.
I hope you are able to join us!
