Antioch University Santa Barbara presents “Antioch in Conversation: The Roberts Court, the Constitution, and Our Future,” on Friday, June 27, from 5-7 p.m. at The New Vic Theater.
Laurence Tribe, author of Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court and the Constitution and professor of Constituional Law at Harvard Law, discusses the ways today’s Supreme Court is changing key components of constitutional law and American government through issues of privacy, free speech, voting rights, marriage equality, presidential power and political contributions.
Tribe is currently a member of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships, and was named the first Senior Counselor for Access to Justice by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.
A Q&A will follow the lecture led by Morgan Chu, trial attorney and partner at Irell & Manella in Los Angeles. Chu received the 2006 Chambers award for Excellence as Outstanding U.S. Intellectual Property Lawyer. The event will end with a book signing.
Antioch in Conversation is designed to engage the public on social issues that affect the local, national, and global public.
