The University of Akron School of Lawâs Joseph G. Miller and William C. Becker Center for Professional Responsibility will offer its inaugural Journalism and the Law Lecture titled âCovering the Roberts Court in the Obama Era: A Reporterâs Reflections.â The lecture will be given by Adam Liptak, Supreme Court Correspondent and columnist for The New York Times. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be held Tuesday, April 6  at 4 p.m. at The Quaker Square Inn at The University of Akron, 135 South Broadway, Akron, Ohio. One hour of free CLE credit will be offered.

In his presentation, Liptak will discuss the Supreme Court in a time of rapid change. After a decade without new justices in the final years of the Rehnquist Court, the Roberts Court has welcomed three new justices and it may well see a fourth appointment in the near future. Liptak will also consider the leadership of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., the impact of Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the implications for the Court of the fact that it has become, given Democratic control of Congress and the Presidency, the most conservative of the three branches of government.

The lecture is offered free of charge, however registration is required. Click here to register.
