The James E. Rogers College of Law is pleased to invite you to an evening with NY Times Supreme Court Correspondent Adam Liptak. In a  conversation format, Mr. Liptak will speak with Professor Jason Kreag of UA Law on the intersection of media, law, and the Supreme Court. This event is hosted by the J. Byron McCormick Society for Law and Public Affairs.  

Adam Liptak covers the Supreme Court for The New York Times. Liptak's column on legal affairs, "Sidebar," appears every other Tuesday. A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Liptak practiced law at a large New York City law firm and in the legal department of The New York Times Company before joining the paper's news staff in 2002.Liptak was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in explanatory reporting in 2009 and received the Scripps Howard Award for Washington reporting in 2010. He was awarded Hofstra University's Presidential Medal and an honorary doctorate from Stetson University College of Law. Liptak is a visiting lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School and an adjunct professor at New York University School of Law.

There is no cost to attend this event, and it is open to the public. A reception will follow the lecture.
