Harlan event poster imageThe John Marshall Harlan ‘20 Program in Constitutional Adjudication celebrates the legacy of John Marshall Harlan, the eighth U.S. Supreme Court justice to graduate from Princeton. (Current Justices Samuel A. Alito, Jr. '72, Sonia Sotomayor '76 and Elena Kagan '81 are the ninth, 10th, and 11th Princeton alumni to serve on the Court.)

Please join us for a panel discussion to address recent notable examples of judicial engagement in the public sphere, including speeches, books, op-eds or other opinion pieces in popular journals. The panelists will discuss recent public engagement by judges and justices about civil rights reform and explore how this engagement contributes to the public’s understanding of civil rights enforcement and the work of the federal courts.
