Students, Faculty, Staff and Alumni: 

Brandeis School of Law has many important alumni that we are proud to claim.  No doubt, William Marshall Bullitt, Solicitor General of the United States is among this group. 

Join us on August 21, 2012 for a reception to honor Louisville attorney, Mark Davis. Mr. Davis, author of the seminal biography of UofL Law alumnus, Solicitor General of the United States, William Marshall Bullitt, will speak to alumni, faculty, staff and students about the life and work of Solicitor General Bullitt. The author forum will take place in the Cox Lounge of Wyatt Hall from 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. 

Judge Heyburn suggested in his review of the book why you might want to be there:

  • To learn the blueprint for becoming one of the nation’s great lawyers.
  • To understand the origins of many of Kentucky’s major law firms.
  • To get an illuminating peek at Kentucky’s and particularly Louisville’s history in the first half of the Twentieth Century.
