Richmond/Williamsburg Events


Next week I have two events in the heart of Virginia:

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, I will be taking part in a debate at the University of Richmond School of Law about last year’s decision on the federal partial-birth abortion ban. Arguing opposite me will be Jessica Arons of the Center for American Progress. The event—titled “Gonzales v. Carhart: Judicial Restraint or Judicial Activism?”—is jointly sponsored by Law Students for Life and Law Students for Reproductive Choice, in conjunction with the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society. It will begin at noon in the law school’s Moot Court Room. It is free and open to the public.

On Wednesday, Feb. 20, I will give a presentation on “Judicial Nominations and the Next President” at the William & Mary School of Law in Williamsburg. The event, sponsored by the law school’s Federalist Society chapter, will begin at 1:00 in Room 127 of the law school. It is free and open to the public.
