Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to speak at UF Law’s Criser Lecture
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas will return to UF Law to deliver this year’s Marshall M. Criser Distinguished Lecture in Law on Friday, Sept. 21, at 10 a.m. in the Marcia Whitney Schott Courtyard.
Like Thomas’ previous visit in 2010, the lecture will be more of a conversation, as he is interviewed by several UF Law students. Further details will be announced as they become available. The event is open to faculty, students and staff but not to the public.
The Marshall M. Criser Distinguished Lecture Series was created in early 2007 by Lewis Schott (B.A. 1943, LL.B. 1946) of Palm Beach, Fla., as a tribute to his fellow UF Law alumnus, former UF President Marshall Criser (JD 51).
The goal of the speaker series is to host prestigious national and international speakers every year on topics of particular interest to law students. Past speakers have included Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens (ret.), Justice Clarence Thomas and former ABA President Stephen Zack (JD 71).
