Monday, Oct. 31: The Supreme Court and the Election
The President’s responsibility to nominate judges to the U.S. Supreme Court —and how those nominees will shape the next few decades — is one of the most important issues in this presidential election, as this Monday Morning Lecture speaker will discuss.
ASU Professor Paul Bender, one of LifeLong Learning’s most popular speakers, will discuss how the death of Justice Antonin Scalia impacted the court’s ability to make decisions on important cases last term as well as the cases that the eight-member court is considering between now and the time a new justice will be confirmed.
Bender teaches U.S. and Arizona constitutional law. He served as dean of the law school from 1984-1989, during which time he was instrumental in starting ASU's Indian Legal Program. Prior to joining ASU, he was on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
He served as principal deputy solicitor general of the United States from 1993-1997, and served as general counsel to the Federal Commission on Obscenity and Pornography from 1968-1970.
He has written extensively about constitutional law and intellectual property and has argued more than 20 cases before the Supreme Court. He continues to participate in cases before federal and state courts involving issues such as civil rights, race and sex discrimination, and freedom of speech and religion.
A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard School of Law, Bender is currently Chief Justice of the Fort McDowell Nation Supreme Court and the San Carlos Apache Court of Appeals.
NOTE: This lecture will be held in the Tuscany Falls Ballroom, due to the renovation of the Renaissance Theater. Tickets are $4 at the door and will be sold in the ballroom lobby.
