This year’s Quinlan Lecture, entitled Inventing Democratic Courts, features Professor Judith Resnik of Yale Law School. Professor Resnik will be discussing her co-authored book Representing Justice: Invention, Controversy and Rights in City-States and Democratic Courtrooms (with Dennis Curtis, Yale Press, 2011), and how looking at courtrooms and their walls provide windows into how courts became egalitarian venues. A new display in the law library lobby highlights Professor Resnik’s works and the concept of justice in courts.
The lecture will take place on April 23 at 5 p.m. in the Homsey Family Moot Courtroom, and will be followed by a reception and dinner at the Ambassador Hotel beginning at 6:30. RSVP for the reception and dinner to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15.
