LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Jeffrey Rosen, professor of law at George Washington University, will give the talk, "Supreme Personalities: Is the Roberts Court on a Collision Course with America?" Monday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Trout Auditorium of the Vaughan Literature Building at Bucknell University.
The talk, which is free to the public, is part of the University's celebration of Constitution Day.
Rosen, who also serves as the legal affairs editor of The New Republic, is the author of several books including The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries that Defined America, The Most Democratic Branch, The Naked Crowd, and The Unwanted Gaze.
A graduate of Harvard University and Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar, he holds his J.D. from Yale Law School.
Rosen's essays and commentaries have appeared in The New York Times magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, and The New Yorker, and on National Public Radio. (The Sept. 9 edition of The New York Times Magazine is currently previewing Rosen's latest story, headlined "Conscience of a Conservative.")
The Chicago Tribune named him one of the 10 best magazine journalists in America and the Los Angeles Times called him "the nation's most widely read and influential legal commentator."
Constitution Day was proposed in 2004 by Sen. Robert C. Byrd as a way to ensure that students gain an increased knowledge and appreciation for this valuable and important document of freedom. Congress declared Sept. 17 as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, commemorating the day the document was adopted in 1787.
