UC Davis Law Review will host what looks like an excellent Symposium on Justice Stevens on March 6. Here's the description:
As part of the 40th anniversary of the dedication of Martin Luther King, Jr., Hall, home to the University of California, Davis, School of Law, the 2009 UC Davis Law Review Symposium will examine the career of U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Since his appointment by President Gerald Ford in 1975, Justice Stevens has crafted a rich jurisprudence on matters involving core values of liberty, equality, and security. Legal experts from academia, journalism, and the practice, many of whom served as law clerks to the Justice, will analyze his work on topics including terrorism, criminal justice, abortion, affirmative action, and environmental protection.
The symposium opens with remarks from Dean Kevin Johnson and a videotaped message from Justice Stevens. The panels--titled "Liberty," "Equality," and "Security"--are impressive. Link to the full schedule, see the Symposium brochure, or see below.
Thanks to Professor Diane Marie Amann (UC Davis Law) for the tip.
