About the Program
Neal Katyal, who has argued 44 cases before the US Supreme Court, will discuss the current term and how decisions will continue to make news on a variety of issues. As an accomplished litigator on the Supreme Court, he will share his insights into the decisions of the Court, what we could expect this term, and their importance for the country. Additionally, Katyal will detail the Court's sometimes tragic role in protecting our civil liberties.
Neal Katyal is the former Obama administration acting solicitor general of the United States, the Paul and Patricia Saunders professor of law at Georgetown University, a partner at Hogan Lovells, a New York Times best-selling author, a constitutional scholar, and a TED speaker. He has argued more Supreme Court cases in US history than has any minority attorney, recently breaking the record held by Thurgood Marshall. Attorney Katyal has received numerous distinctions and has appeared on virtually every major American news program, as well as on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and House of Cards.
