Supreme Court Forum Event on Special Counsel

ACS & Supreme Court Forum Event on Special Counsel:

Join Professor Bob Bauer, former White House Counsel and Professor of Practice and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at NYU Law, and Professor Jack Goldsmith, former Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel and Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, for a discussion on the institution of the special counsel. 

This is a timely conversation in light of controversies and questions that have confronted special counsels from Robert Mueller and the Russia election interference investigation to Robert Hur and the recent report declining to prosecute President Biden for his handling of classified material. Professors Goldsmith and Bauer will discuss whether the institution should be retained in its current form, reformed, or ended. 

You can read more about their different perspectives in this piece from Professor Goldsmith in the New York Times and this response from Professor Bauer in Lawfare. 

This event will be in Vanderbilt 204 on Monday, April 15th at 1:10 pm and is sponsored by the Supreme Court Forum. We will be providing lunch from Saigon Shack.
