Inaugural Constitution Day Lecture: “The Renaissance of Federalism”

Speaker: The Honorable Clint Bolick
Associate Justice, Arizona Supreme Court

September 17, 1787 was the final day of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia; with George Washington presiding as the president of the convention, the delegates who supported the final draft added their signatures to the text. In order to promote both understanding and appreciation of our nation’s fundamental law, The School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University is proud to inaugurate an annual lecture series for Constitution Day and delighted that a distinguished legal advocate, scholar, and now state supreme court justice will deliver the inaugural lecture.  .

Justice Bolick’s address will be open to all members of the ASU community and the wider general public, followed by an hors d'oeuvres reception.

The Honorable Clint Bolick was appointed by Governor Doug Ducey in January 2016 to serve on the Arizona Supreme Court. Prior to joining the Court, Justice Bolick litigated constitutional cases in state and federal courts from coast to coast, including the U.S. Supreme Court. Among other positions, he served as Vice President for Litigation at the Goldwater Institute and as Co-founder and Vice President for Litigation at the Institute for Justice.
