Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens will visit UF Law Tuesday, Feb. 5, to discuss how constitutional standards apply to proportionality in criminal sentencing. The discussion will be facilitated by a panel of UF Law faculty members. It will be held in the Marcia Whitney Schott Courtyard from 12:30 – 1:45 p.m. Tickets are required to attend the discussion. The event is closed to the general public.

Students may pick up tickets in the Office of Student Affairs and faculty and staff may pick up tickets from Doris Perron in the dean’s suite. In the event of rain, Stevens’ talk will be moved to the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom (HOL 180), and the first 200 people who pick up tickets will be allowed into the classroom to watch the discussion. No book bags or other large bags will be allowed through the security point. No re-entry into the courtyard will be permitted.
