Annual meeting and special guest speaker Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science Akhil Amar, ’80 BA, ’84 JD
May 2, 6-8 pm
at the Ethical Society
1906 Rittenhouse Square
For the first time in our lifetime—and for one of the few times in modern history—all four major federal institutions of power were in play in the last election. At present, all are now in control of one party. In this talk, based in part on his recently released book, The Constitution Today, Professor Amar will discuss the constitutional significance of all this and will touch upon a wide range of modern cases and controversies—from gun control to gay rights, from the electoral college to campaign finance to filibuster reform. Come prepared to ask any question you like about America’s constitutional system—past, present, and future
Known as a brilliant, dazzling, and witty speaker, Prof Amar has been cited favorably in more Supreme Court decisions than any other scholar in his generation, and likewise is one of the most cited legal scholars today. A rare chance to hear one of Yale’s most outstanding teachers.
Unwind and mingle at a reception with light fare and beverages then participate in a brief meeting to review the year and announce our new officers.
