A Conversation with Former White House Counsel Stuart Delery

Join us in SLB 128 this Thursday for a conversation with Stuart Delery, co-hosted by YLDems and OutLaws. Stuart was the White House Counsel for President Biden from 2022-2023 and was the first openly gay person to serve in that role. The NYTimes wrote this about Stuart: "Mr. Delery, a low-key and studious Yale Law School graduate, was among the legal architects of some of Mr. Biden’s most important initiatives, including strategies to distribute Covid-19 vaccines, to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars of student debt and to revamp immigration after the expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era measure.

Mr. Delery also oversaw a drive to install as many judges as possible. During his tenure, 20 nominees were confirmed to federal appeals courts and 51 to federal district courts. The slate of new judges has been the most diverse in history."

Stuart graduated from Yale Law School and the University of Virginia. Stuart clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Byron White and for Judge Gerald Bard Tjoflat of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
