King Hall, Moot Courtroom, UC Davis
The 2010 Edward L. Barrett, Jr., Lectureship on Constitutional Law will feature Stephen R. Reinhardt, Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He will deliver a lecture entitled "Life to Death: Our Constitution and How It Grows."
Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is widely regarded as one of the most influential-and liberal-judges in the country. Born in New York City in 1931, Judge Reinhardt attended Pomona College and Yale Law School, then served as a Lieutenant in the Office of General Counsel of the Secretary of the Air Force and a law clerk to Judge Luther W. Youngdahl of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. In 1958, he entered private practice, where he worked until his appointment to the federal bench by President Jimmy Carter in 1980. Over the years, he has also served in a number of civic posts, including President of the Los Angeles Police Commission and Secretary of the Los Angeles Organizing Committee for the 1984 Olympics. As a member of the San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit-the largest federal appellate court in the nation-Judge Reinhardt has authored rulings on, among many other cutting-edge legal issues, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, the death penalty, and term limits. In his Barrett lecture, Judge Reinhardt will discuss "Life to Death: Our Constitution and How It Grows."
The Edward L. Barrett, Jr., Lectureship on Constitutional Law was established in 1986 to mark the retirement of King Hall's founding dean, Edward L. Barrett, Jr., and the Law School's 20th anniversary.
