U.S. Representative John Yarmuth will be speaking in at University of Louisville's Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, Tuesday, October 18th, 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the Allen Courtroom.
Congressman Yarmuth represents Kentucky’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. In his third term, Congressman Yarmuth was selected to the Committee on Budget, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Committee on Ethics. He served as President of the Freshman Class, as Senior Whip, and was named Legislator of the Year by the Kentucky Reading Association, "Outstanding New Member of Congress" by the Committee for Education Funding, which is the largest non-partisan education organization in the nation, and "Best of Congress" by Working Mother Magazine and Corporate Voices for Working Families both in 2008 and 2010.
Though best known for his work in the media, Yarmuth’s diverse career, prior to entering the political arena, gave him a solid background in policy, business, higher education, and healthcare.
Yarmuth previously worked on Capitol Hill as Legislative Aide for Kentucky Senator Marlow Cook from 1971 to 1974, before moving back to Louisville, to publish Louisville Today Magazine. He went on to work as Associate Vice President of University Relations at the University of Louisville and Vice President of a local healthcare firm.
In 1990, Yarmuth founded LEO Newsweekly, a free publication with approximately 150,000 monthly readers. With Yarmuth as editor, LEO won nearly 100 Metro Louisville Journalism Awards, 16 of which were awarded to Yarmuth for his editorial and column writing. He owned the paper from 1990 to 2003, and continued writing his columns through 2005.
On television he debated local and national politics as co-host and commentator on WAVE 3’s "Yarmuth & Ziegler" in 2003 and “Hot Button” in 2004 and 2005.
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Congressman Yarmuth graduated from Atherton High School. He went on to earn a degree in American Studies from Yale University.

The 2011 Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition On Regulatory and Administrative Law
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy is pleased to announce its fourth annual Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law. Judge Cudahy's work in these areas combines a keen grasp of legal doctrine, deep insight into the institutional forces that determine how doctrine is implemented, and an appreciation of the public impact of doctrinal and institutional choices, including the consequences for fundamental values such as fairness, participation, and transparency. This competition seeks to encourage and reward these qualities in the scholarship of others.
Overview: The Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law is open to a wide array of participants. Practicing lawyers, policymakers, academics, and law students all are encouraged to take part. The judging committee will include federal judges and leading academics. A winner will be selected in both the lawyer and student categories. The author of the winning paper in each category will receive a cash prize of $1,500. The winning papers will receive special recognition at the ACS National Convention, on the ACS website, and potentially through other means agreed upon by the authors and ACS.
We encourage participants to view this topic broadly and welcome submissions on a variety of substantive areas.
The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2011.
