Upcoming (and Ongoing) Symposia at the University of Alabama School of Law

With what I hope is pardonable pride and an utter absence of institutional self-interest, I wanted to call attention to two events at my law school, one taking place today and one in a few weeks. 

We have been blessed this year by the presence at the Law School of Joyce Vance, formerly the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama. With her hard work and that of others, today the Law School is hosting a symposium titled The Role of Lawyers in Good Government, in which a variety of distinguished current and former U.S. Attorney office-holders and other high government agency lawyers discuss the role of lawyers in government and public policy. I am sorry this was posted so late, but I think it's a terrific symposium and well worth celebrating.

In a few weeks, the Alabama Law Review will hold its annual symposium. This year, the subject is Life After Scalia: Justice Gorsuch and Modern Textualism on the Supreme Court. The speakers include Victoria Nourse, our own Heather Elliott, Christopher Green, Hillel Levin, Kristin Hickman, and Matthew Franck. The title might have added the words "(and More)" after "Modern Textualism," because in addition to that question, panelists will be discussing other issues, such as the judicial nominations process. It should be a great symposium and is certainly a timely one.
