How has oral advocacy before the nation’s highest court shaped the American story? Neal Katyal has argued more cases before the U.S. Supreme Court—close to 40—than any minority lawyer in American history, breaking the record previously held by Thurgood Marshall. Join us for a conversation with one of the nation’s foremost legal scholars on his life and career, exploring his early pro bono case involving Osama Bin Laden’s driver, his work under Elena Kagan and then succeeding her in the U.S. Solicitor General’s office, and his current position as a preeminent member of the private bar arguing cases before the Court.
Neal Katyal is Paul and Patricia Saunders Professor of Law at Georgetown University, a Partner at Hogan Lovells, and previously served as acting solicitor general of the United States. Akhil Reed Amar (moderator) is Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University and a trustee of the New-York Historical Society.Buy tickets/get more info now
