This conference commemorates the constitutional legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren and the Warren Court, and will feature a set of lectures by leading constitutional lawyers, legal historians, and political scientists. Several of the lectures will deal with the impact of the Warren Court on legal development in Europe, Asia, and the Americas; others will treat the Court's legacy in U.S. law in major areas such as criminal justice, freedom of speech, equal protection and desegregation.
Professor Jesse H. Choper, the Earl Warren Professor of Public Law at Boalt Hall who served as law clerk to Chief Justice Warren following graduation from law school, will open the conference program with a talk on “Earl Warren – the Man and the Court.”
All conference sessions are free and open to the public.
