McGeorge School of Law professor and Director of the Capital Center for Law & Policy, Leslie Gielow Jacobs appeared on Capital Public Radio’s Insight earlier today preview tonight’s Justices on Justice event.
As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, the event is SOLD OUT. However, there will be overflow seating at McGeorge School of Law in the Courtroom, which will have a live simulcast of the discussion. Tonight’s panelists are Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Anthony Kennedy (retired), Presiding Judge of the Constitutional Court Chamber at the Kosovo Specialist Chambers in The Hague Ann Power-Forde, Justice of the California Supreme Court Joseph Grodin, and Judge in the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Austria Dr. Wolfgang Brandstetter.
If you are unable to attend the event in person, you can also watch it via the live stream below.
Tonight’s event, celebrating the newly created Justice Anthony M. Kennedy Endowed Chair, is made possible by a $1 million gift from the Tsakopoulos Family Foundation, which was doubled by the University of the Pacific’s Powell Fund match to create a $2 million endowment. Angelo K. and Sofia Tsakopoulos are longtime friends of Anthony and Mary Kennedy and the McGeorge School of Law. Kyriakos Tsakopoulos is a 1997 McGeorge alumnus. The Endowed Chair will provide the resources to bring prominent faculty to McGeorge to teach and advance legal thinking through scholarship and leadership in the legal community.
