Union League Club of Chicago
65 W Jackson Blvd
Chicago, IL  60604 Map

The Appellate Lawyers Association and the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago Cordially Invite You to Attend Their February Luncheon Program

Neutral Umpires and Honest Black Robes: What Is, and Is Not, Said at Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings

Featuring Professor Carolyn Shapiro, Former Illinois Solicitor General

Former Illinois Solicitor General Carolyn Shapiro, a professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law and the founder and co-director of its Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States, will discuss how Senators and nominees to the Court alike have generally described the role of the Court and its justices during confirmation hearings. These descriptions often emphasize objectivity and neutrality, sometimes even suggesting little-to-no role for discretion, judgment, or judicial philosophy. These discussions paint an inaccurate picture of what the Court actually does and can create unrealistic expectations among members of the public.

Date: Friday, February 9, 2018

Time: 12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

MCLE: Participants will earn one hour of MCLE credit. The ALA is an approved MCLE provider.

Location: Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois. Please note the Union League Club enforces a dress code, which can be accessed at www.ulcc.org/ (scroll to bottom and click on "Dress Code").

Cost: $40 for public-sector members of either association; $50 for private-sector members of either association; $55 for public-sector nonmembers; and $65 for private-sector nonmembers. Lunch is included.

PLEASE NOTE: Registrations processed on-site will be charged an additional $5 administrative fee.

From the Abolition Institute:

Honor Abraham Lincoln's birthday by welcoming two of the world's most acclaimed anti-slavery leaders to Chicago from Mauritania, West Africa.

Mauritania has been called Slavery's last stronghold by CNN and ranked as the nation with the largest percentage of its own people still enslaved. Slavery in Mauritania was not criminalized until 2007 - and its weak laws against the practice are seldom enforced. Mauritanians Biram Abeid and Brahim Randhame faced severe persecution for fighting against slavery, but now they are turning their country towards freedom. On February 13th, join us in welcoming these heroes to Chicago!

Check out the full event page for more information and to RSVP:
