On February 9, the ALA along with the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago will host “Neutral Umpires and Honest Black Robes: What Is, and Is Not, Said at Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings,” featuring Professor Carolyn Shapiro, the former Illinois Solicitor General.
Professor Shapiro teaches at Chicago-Kent College of Law, where she founded and acts as co-director of its Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States. At the event, Professor Shapiro will discuss how senators and nominees to the Supreme Court have described the role of the Court and its justices during confirmation hearings.
The event will begin at noon and run until 1:30 p.m. at the Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Boulevard. The Union League Club enforces a dress code, which can be found here.
