No seat was left unoccupied in the New Vic Theatre Friday, June 27, for AUSB’s hosting of Laurence Tribe, one of the country’s leading constitutional lawyers, as he shared his fascinating perspective on today’s Supreme Court as part of our Antioch in Conversation series. Tribe was introduced by Victoria Riskin – chair of AUSB’s Board of Trustees – and fielded questions from interlocutor Morgan Chu – President of the Harvard Board of Overseers and attorney at Irell & Manella, LLP – and at the end of the conversation the audience engaged with him in a lively question-answer period.
In case you missed Laurence Tribe, or were present and would like to share the conversation with a friend, we have provided full video coverage from this Antioch in Conversation event. You can watch the video here.
Tribe’s discussion elucidates the ways in which today’s Supreme Court has the power to redefine the future of our nation, including the following areas: privacy , free speech , voting rights, marriage equality , presidential power , and political contributions.
Afterwards, the audience got to meet Tribe as he signed copies of his new book that he co-authored with Joshua Matz called Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court and the Constitution.
We are grateful to our co-sponsors of this event, the Santa Barbara County Bar Association and the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County.
We look forward to seeing you at our next Antioch in Conversation event!
Antioch in Conversation is a new AUSB community event series designed for public engagement and dialogue about the social issues that affect us all on a local, national, and global basis.
