'Why A Culture of Law and Constitutionalism Matters' with Robert Post

First annual School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership pre-law lecture

Please join us for an informal conversation with Professor Robert Post, one of America’s leading legal scholars, on the importance of studying the Constitution as the foundation of studying law.

Post, who is currently a Sterling Professor of Law at Yale Law School, has previously served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice William Brennan, a litigator at Williams and Connolly, a professor of law at both Berkeley and Yale, and most recently dean of the Yale Law School. He has written widely about a variety of topics in constitutional law, including the First Amendment, "Citizens United," the equal protection clause and anti-discrimination law, federalism and prohibition, and the backlash against Roe v. Wade, with his work appearing in books, legal journals, and popular venues as well.

The event will be an opportunity for students, especially those interested in legal study and or law school, to learn from this wealth of experiences as they consider their future careers and roles as citizens.
