Antioch in Conversation with Attorney Laurence Tribe – June 27th

Laurence Tribe

Antioch University Santa Barbara (AUSB), the Santa Barbara County Bar Association, and the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County are pleased to welcome one of the country’s foremost constitutional experts, Harvard Law Professor and author Laurence Tribe, for a special evening, “Antioch in Conversation: The Roberts Court, the Constitution, and Our Future” on Friday, June 27, 5-7pm. This free event is open to the community and held at The New Vic Theater, 33 West Victoria, Santa Barbara. Please RSVP by Monday, June 16.

Laurence Tribe is a highly-respected appellate attorney and Harvard University Law School professor and is considered to be among the United States’ most influential constitutional legal experts. He wrote the preeminent treatise American Constitutional Law, cited more often than any other legal text, and has argued before the Supreme Court 35 times. Tribe currently serves as 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.

During this event, Tribe will share his fascinating, somewhat unsettling inside look at how the Roberts Court is rewriting critical aspects of constitutional law and redrawing the ground rules of American government – and why today’s Supreme Court has the unprecedented power to redefine the future of our nation.

A newly released book written by Laurence Tribe and Joshua Matz.

An interactive audience Q&A will follow, guided by noted trial attorney Morgan Chu – a partner at Los Angeles-based Irell & Manella, LLP, and recipient of the 2006 Chambers Award for Excellence as Outstanding U.S. Intellectual Property Lawyer. Afterwards, Tribe will sign copies of his new book, Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court and the Constitution, co-authored with Joshua Matz, which will be available for purchase. Tribe, in a recent On Point radio broadcast, discussed what he means by “uncertain justice.”
