Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. to visit Alabama Law

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The Chief Justice of the United States, John G. Roberts, Jr., will deliver the University of Alabama School of Law's spring 2010 Albritton Lecture on Tuesday, March 9 at 2 p.m. (CST) in room 287/288.

Chief Justice Roberts's visit will mark the ninth U.S. Supreme Court Justice since 1996 to lecture at the School of Law. His remarks will be followed by a short Q&A session, wherein the nation's highest ranking judicial officer will field questions from Alabama's law students. A video and podcast of the event will be posted on the Law School's website, Law.UA.Edu, as well as on the University of Alabama's iTunesU page, during the week of March 15.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Those who are planning to attend are advised that book bags, handbags, or large coats will not be permitted within room 287/288 during the Chief Justice's lecture.

The Albritton Lecture series was established by Judge William Harold Albritton III, a 1960 Alabama Law alumnus and Senior Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama.

The Law School's previous Albritton Lecture, in fall 2009, was presented by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas. The Honorable Beverley McLachlin, who serves as Canada's first female Supreme Court Chief Justice, delivered the spring 2009 Albritton Lecture.

Alabama Law's forthcoming fall 2010 Albritton Lecturer will be The Honorable Robert S. French, Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia.
