On Friday, April 27, the ALA will host its Signature Luncheon, featuring Dahlia Lithwick of Slate, who will discuss the current term of the United States Supreme Court, the current dynamics of the Court, as well as other matters of interest.
Ms. Lithwick is one of the most recognized and respected voices in national legal journalism. A senior editor at Slate and contributing editor at Newsweek, she graduated from Yale University and Stanford Law School. She clerked for Judge Procter Hug, Jr., of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and practiced law in Nevada before joining Slate, where she writes the “Supreme Court Dispatches” and “Jurisprudence” columns and hosts the popular “Amicus” podcast. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Harper’s, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post. In addition, she has appeared on CNN and ABC and is a regular guest of “The Rachel Maddow Show.” In 2013, she won the National Magazine Award for her reporting on the Affordable Care Act, and she has twice been awarded an Online Journalism Award for her legal commentary.
The event is sponsored by Baker McKenzie, Forde Law Offices LLP, Tabet DiVito & Rothstein LLC, and Winston & Strawn LLP. It will begin at noon and run until 1:30 p.m. at the Union League Club in Chicago (dress code must be followed). Attendees will earn one hour of MCLE credit.
