On January 21, 2016, the Association will host a luncheon at the Union League Club in Chicago featuring Adam Liptak of the New York Times. Liptak will speak about the United States Supreme Court the past 10 years under Chief Justice John Roberts. Not only will Liptak discuss the impactful stories from the Court the past decade, but he will also reflect on his own experiences covering the Court.
Liptak, an attorney by trade, joined the Times in 2002, first covering the Court in the fall of 2008. Liptak was a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting for his series, "American Exception," which explored the differences between the American legal system and those of other developed nations.
Liptak originally was a copyboy for the Times after graduating from Yale University. He eventually returned to Yale, and in 1988, he graduated from its law school. After law school, Liptak spent four years working as a litigation associate at Cahill Gordon & Reindel in New York City, specializing in First Amendment cases. In 1992, he returned to the Times, working in its legal department. Liptak has taught media law at Columbia University's School of Journalism, the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Law and Yale Law School.
