Chief Judge of U.S. Court of Appeals to Speak at Robert B. Cole Lecture Series

5:00 pm

Miami Law’s Robert B. Cole Lecture Series will feature Alex Kozinski, chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, on Tuesday, April 10. An essayist and judicial commentator, he was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1985 and was the youngest federal appeals court judge at the time. Prior to his appointment on the appellate bench, Kozinski served as chief judge of the United States Claims Court. He also served as law clerk to Chief Justice Warren E. Burger and to Circuit Judge Anthony M. Kennedy. He holds an A.B. degree (1973) and a J.D. degree (1976) from UCLA.

Kozinski’s lecture, titled “In the Court Where I Live,” will be held at 5 p.m. at Gusman Concert Hall. The event is free and open to the public. Click here to RSVP for the event.

The Robert B. Cole Lecture was established in 1985 through the generosity of the former Miami law firm of Mershon, Sawyer, Johnston, Dunwody & Cole. The lecture honors the late Robert B. Cole, a member of The Florida Bar since 1935 and name partner of the firm. Cole served for many years as the principal legal advisor to the University of Miami and served on Miami Law’s Visiting Committee. He passed away in 1997 and made provisions in his will so that the lectures would continue. His son, attorney Richard P. Cole, continues to sponsor the lecture in memory of his father.

The Cole Lecture provides a forum for faculty, students, practicing attorneys, and the public to hear distinguished jurists and public figures discuss important legal and international matters. Previous speakers include United States Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Justice John Paul Stevens, Justice William J. Brennan Jr., Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Justice Stephen G. Breyer, and George J. Mitchell, former majority leader of the United States Senate.
