  For a special insight into the U. S. Supreme Court, you may want to check out a special speaker at the University of Alabama.

John Paul Stevens, retired associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, will visit Alabama Law Nov. 16th to present the Fall 2011 Albritton Lecture.

 It's open to the public. It begins at 3:30 p.m. in the Mcmillan Lecture Hall, room 287/288..

You don't have to register, but keep in mind that purses, bags, laptops, umbrellas or large jackets are not allowed in the lecture hall.

Stevens' visit coincides with a flurry of recent media coverage about the former justice, who recently released the book Five Chiefs: A Supreme Court Memoir.

 In the book, Stevens chronicles his history with the highest court, and focuses on his personal relationship with the five Chief Justices.

 

Join us Nov. 16th for this rare opportunity to gain insight into the Supreme Court from one of its longest serving members.
