Justice John Paul Stevens speaks at UF Law Tuesday
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens will be at UF Law Tuesday as this semester’s Marshall Criser Distinguished Lecturer. The conversation, at 12:30 p.m. in the Marcia Whitney Schott Courtyard, is expected to cover issues including proportionality in sentencing, the justice’s proposal for an amendment of the Supremacy Clause of Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, and his criminal law jurisprudence. The discussion will be facilitated by UF Law faculty members Kenneth Nunn, John Stinneford and Danaya Wright. Tickets are required to attend the discussion.
Students tickets are available in 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 180 people who pick up tickets will be allowed into the classroom to watch the discussion. The event will also be available as a live webcast here: http://video.ufl.edu/service2/public/pub_showMain.php?id=41294. The advocacy center will be made available for the streamed event.
No book bags or other large bags will be allowed through the security point. No re-entry into the courtyard will be permitted.
