I’ve been remiss in spreading this news, but you’ve still got a day to clear your schedule:

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. will be visiting The University of Arizona to deliver an address as part of an annual speaker series, and he has also made time to speak with University students.

Roberts’ visit is part of a lecture series sponsored by the UA College of Law’s nonpartisan Rehnquist Center, which was established in 2006 to honor the legacy of the late William H. Rehnquist.

On Feb. 3, UA students are welcome to attend a conversation with Roberts. The event will be held at the School of Music, 1017 N. Olive Road. A continental breakfast will be served at 8:30 a.m. in the Holsclaw Hall lobby, followed by a discussion with Roberts from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. in Crowder Hall.

The first person to reference this passage in a question wins a year’s supply of cool points.

    I attended the discussion today– thanks to a canceled class. Unfortunately, there was a small turn out, overwhelmingly law students. Overall, there was some really interesting discussion on the decreasing number of cases heard by the Supreme Court, Andrew Jackson, the issue of enforcement, and other judicial subject matter. I wish more students knew/would take advantage of these opportunities around campus.

    I totally would have gone if it were advertised better. I’m glad Emily got to experience it, though. It would have been a great opportunity for UA students.
