Professor Reva B. Siegel of Yale Law School will deliver the keynote lecture at this year’s Thomas M. Jorde Symposium at Boalt Hall. The symposium, co-sponsored by Boalt and the New York University School of Law’s Brennan Center for Justice, was founded in 1997 and endowed by Thomas M. Jorde, Boalt professor of law emeritus.
Siegel’s keynote is titled, “Constitutional Culture, Social Movement Conflict, and the Constitution of the Family.” She explores the interaction between the courts and social movements, such as the battle to outlaw sex discrimination, and considers the implications for both movements and constitutional jurisprudence. Dean Larry D. Kramer of Stanford Law School and Professor Robin West of Georgetown University Law Center will offer commentary on Professor Siegel’s lecture.
The 2005 Jorde Symposium takes place on Monday, September 19, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 105 Law Building.
