Lecture to look at SCOTUS ethics

October 16, 2012

The Tabor Institute on Legal Ethics topic this year at Valparaiso University Law School is United States Supreme Court ethics in the wake of NFIB v. Seblius.

Steven Lubet, the Edna B. and Ednyfed H. Williams Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Fred Bartlit Center for Trial Strategy at Northwestern University Law School, will deliver the public lecture. Lubet will discuss how the U.S. Supreme Court is the only court in the country without a clearly defined ethics code. He will suggest that the court should adopt a comprehensive code of conduct and that disqualification of justices should be determined by a full vote of the court.

Following the lecture will be a round table moderated by Valparaiso associate law professor Michael Murray. Participants are John Marshall Law School professor Kevin Hopkins, Northern Illinois University College of Law professor Laurel Rigertas, and Loyola University Chicago School of Law professor Barry Sullivan.

The public lecture begins at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 19, with the round table discussion beginning at 4 p.m. Approximately two hours of CLE is pending approval. Click here to RSVP for the event.
