Interested in how state courts can protect individual rights in 2017? Curious about the relationship between state and federal constitutions? Come hear two jurists—Justice Goodwin Liu and Judge Jeffrey Sutton—discuss these issues and more, along with Professor Abbe Gluck and Professor Judith Resnik. The event is co-sponsored by Fed Soc, ACS, and APALSA, and is generously supported by the Oscar M. Ruebhausen Fund.

Goodwin Liu ’98 is an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of California and teaches at Berkeley. His 2017 Brennan Lecture at NYU explored the relationship between state courts, state constitutions, federal constitutional jurisprudence and individual rights.

Jeffrey Sutton sits on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and previously served as Ohio’s State Solicitor. In addition, he teaches at Harvard and Ohio State’s law school, has co-authored a casebook on state constitutional law, and has written extensively on the same subject.
