Program to feature panel of former Supreme Court clerks, Nov. 18

Five former U.S. Supreme Court law clerks will participate in a panel discussion at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, in 16 Robertson Hall.

"The Legacy of Justice Harlan: A Conversation With His Clerks," is being hosted by the Program in Law and Public Affairs in conjunction with the first John Marshall Harlan '20 Lecture in Constitutional Adjudication. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor will deliver the lecture on Monday, Nov. 17. A lottery for tickets to the O'Connor lecture has been held, and winners have been notified. The Nov. 18 panel is free and open to the public.

Four former Harlan clerks, including two Princeton alumni, and a former clerk of O'Connor will participate in the panel. The former Harlan clerks are: Norman Dorsen, the Stokes Professor of Law at the New York University School of Law and former president of the American Civil Liberties Union; Marvin Gray Jr., a 1966 Princeton graduate and a partner at Davis Wright Termaine; Kent Greenwalt, a professor at Columbia Law School; and Thomas Stoel Jr., a 1962 Princeton graduate and an environmental attorney and consultant who cofounded the Natural Resources Defense Council. Also participating will be Marci Hamilton, the Paul Verkuil Chair in Public Law and director of the Intellectual Property Law Program at Cardozo Law School, who clerked for O'Connor and is now a Supreme Court litigator.

The John Marshall Harlan '20 Lecture in Constitutional Adjudication honors the 1920 Princeton graduate who served on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1955 until 1971. Harlan was the eighth and most recent Princetonian to serve on the court.
