Lecture with George William Van Cleve

"My Journey from Law Practice to Legal History"

A Talk by

Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence George William Van Cleve

October 27, 2011


Dore Courtroom

George Van Cleve’s legal career has included private practice, public service, and the publication of a major historical work on slavery’s role in the creation of the American constitutional scheme. Please join him as he shares his reflections on, among other things:

his involvement in the Congressional investigation into the Iran-Contra scandal;

his participation in the litigation arising out of the Exxon Valdez oil spill;

and why he decided to leave a successful practice and pursue an advanced degree in history.

Lunch will be provided.
