Greetings,

 

Thank you to all of the alumni, students, friends, partners, faculty, staff, and furry companions who joined us for our Centennial Homecoming events. It was an outstanding weekend to reconnect, honor the history and pride of Arizona Law, and showcase where we are headed in the years to come. 

 

This week we offer a few candid moments from all the celebrations. The Centennial party will continue in the months to come.

 

And don't forget to join us this Friday as we take on ASU in the annual Jenckes Competition       -- and go for an unprecedented fifth victory in a row!

 

Until the footnotes,

 

Marc

Remembering Cliff Altfeld

 

We send sincere condolences to the family and friends of Clifford Altfeld ('78) who passed away on November 9th. Cliff was a determined advocate, a man of wit and wisdom, and most of all, an enduring member of the Tucson community. From teaching classes at the College of Law to serving on the Catalina Foothills School District Governing Board, his impact resonates throughout the profession and the local community. He will be missed. 

 

The Mind & the Law Lecture Series: Our Perfect Supreme Court? "From the crooked timber of humanity no straight thing was ever made."

 

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

7 pm
Ares Auditorium (Room 164) 

 

Charles Fried of Harvard Law School -- formerly a member of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts and Solicitor General of the United States -- discusses what is judicial wisdom, and how do judges really decide cases? Judges have long sought, and sometimes vainly pretended to have, a foolproof method for adjudicating constitutional cases. Ultimately these theories of perfection -- including versions of original intent, original meaning, and several types of textualism -- all fall short. Nonetheless it is possible to describe examples of wise, if not flawless and uncontroversial, judging. We can draw instruction if not prescription from them.

 

No RSVP required. 

 

Future dates in the series: December 3.
