|Leading constitutional law scholar to speak at UND April 21|
“How the American Legal and Constitutional Culture Has Placed Women and Children at Risk” is the theme of Helen Hamilton Day 2008, sponsored by Law Women’s Caucus and the Multicultural Awareness Committee. Marci Hamilton, one of the country’s leading constitutional law scholars, will give two presentations on the topic — at 10 a.m. and 1:10 p.m. Monday, April 21, in the Baker Courtroom of the Law School. Both events are free and open to the public.
Hamilton is frequently asked to advise Congress and state legislatures on the constitutionality of pending legislation. She is a visiting professor and senior research fellow in the Program in Law and Public Affairs at Princeton University. She has authored “Justice Denied: What America Must Do to Protect Its Children” and “God vs. the Gavel: Religion and the Rule of Law.”
Helen Hamilton Day is an annual event at the UND School of Law, meant to honor the law school’s first female graduate, Helen Hamilton, who graduated in 1905. North Dakota CLE credits are available.
