Harvard Law School sealI’ve done book events for Supreme Ambitions with a number of Federalist Society chapters around the country, consisting of remarks from me about key themes of Supreme Ambitions followed by commentary from a distinguished guest. Past events have been hosted by chapters in Los Angeles (with Judge Alex Kozinski of the Ninth Circuit), Indianapolis (with Judge John D. Tinder of the Seventh Circuit), Yale Law School (with Professor Amy Chua), and the University of Chicago Law School (with Professor Alison LaCroix). The event requires no knowledge of the book; rather, I use the book as a jumping-off point for discussing such topics as judging, clerking, ethics, ambition, jurisdiction, and gender.

I’m delighted to report that I’ll be up in Boston for another such event hosted by the Harvard Federalist Society. It’s free and open to all. Here are the details:

Thursday, September 24, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Harvard Law School
Wasserstein Hall — Caspersen Student Center
WCC 2012

I’m pleased and honored to be joined for this event by one of the nation’s most distinguished lawyers and legal academics: Charles Fried, the Beneficial Professor of Law. As a former United States Solicitor General, Associate Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and Supreme Court law clerk (to John Marshall Harlan II), Professor Fried will be a superb commentator.

I look forward to seeing folks in Cambridge later this week. If you’d be interested in having me speak to your local Federalist Society chapter, please feel free to drop me a line.
