The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard arguments regarding the 1965 Voting Rights Act in the pivotal case Shelby County v. Holder. The issue before the Court was the whether Congress’ decision in 2006 to reauthorize Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act exceeded its authority under the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments thus violating the Tenth Amendment and Article IV. Constitutional law Professor Cedric Powell will be discussing the Shelby County case, the history of the the VRA and its relevance today, and his theories on the Robert's court post-racial constitutionalism (including Parents Involved and Ricci) where the Court signals that formal racism has ended and there is no need to employ race-conscious remedies. Professor Powell has written over a broad range of topics including affirmative action and Critical Race Theory. His current research focuses on developing an analytical framework for critiquing post-racial neutrality under the Fourteenth Amendment and Title VII. Room 175. Lunch will be provided.

 Louis D. Brandeis School of Law proudly announces our 2013 Brandeis Medal recipient, Justice John Paul Stevens. The medal will be presented at a dinner on April 18, 2013. Join us for a reception at 6 p.m. Justice Stevens will present at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will begin after Justice Stevens' talk.   The life work of Justice Stevens is very much in keeping with the values of Justice Brandeis. His service on the Court and his commitment to civility and a balanced approach to issues are values and qualities that Justice Brandeis would have applauded. He shares with Justice Brandeis an interest in antitrust law, free speech, search and seizure, and the role of state governments. His commitment to public service has been honored at many law schools through Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowships.  Justice Stevens traces his seat on the Court directly to Justice Brandeis. When Justice Brandeis left the Court, he was replaced by Justice William O. Douglas, and when Justice Douglas retired, Justice Stevens was appointed to that position. Justice Elena Kagan was appointed to replace Justice Stevens. In his 2011 book, Five Chiefs: A Supreme Court Memoir, Justice Stevens describes the history of the Court by reflecting on the five Chief Justices of the Supreme Court with whom he served during his service from 1975 to 2010. The Brandeis Medal is awarded to individuals whose lives reflect Justice Brandeis’ commitment to the ideals of public service. Previous recipients include Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor, Harry A. Blackmun, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Stephen G. Breyer; Judges A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr. and Abner J. Mikva; New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau; Professors Archibald Cox, Jr.; Professors Samuel Dash and Charles J. Ogletree; civil rights attorney Morris Dees, Jr.; Senator Howard H. Baker; Congressman John Lewis; Brandeis biographer Melvin Urofsky, and legal journalist Linda Greenhouse. The 2013 Brandeis Medal Presentation and Dinner is made possible through funds provided by the Wilson W. and Anne D. Wyatt Distinguished Speakers Endowment.   Your last chance to register to attend this event is April 11, 2013.To reserve a table for this event, please contact Becky Wimberg, or call 502-852-6879
