Judge Douglas Ginsburg

Thursday, March 1, 2018 @ 10:00am
The Society of the Four Arts

For 25 years Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg heard more than 100 cases annually as one of the top appellate judges in the nation. Ginsburg was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in 1986; he served as Chief Judge from 2001 to 2008. After receiving his B.S. from Cornell University in 1970, and his J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School in 1973, he clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall on the United States Supreme Court. Thereafter, Judge Ginsburg was a professor at the Harvard Law School, Assistant United States Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice. Concurrent with his service on the federal bench, Judge Ginsburg has taught at the University of Chicago Law School and the New York University School of Law. Judge Ginsburg is currently a Professor of Law at the Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University, and a visiting professor at the University College London, Faculty of Laws. Judge Ginsburg is the Chairman of the International Advisory Board of the Global Antitrust Institute at the Antonin Scalia Law School. Known among corporate attorneys as a “giant in antitrust law,” Ginsburg has heard appeals in several of the landmark antitrust cases of our times, including U.S. v. Microsoft. He also serves on the Advisory Boards of: Competition Policy International; the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy; the Journal of Competition Law and Economics; the Journal of Law, Economics and Policy; the Supreme Court Economic Review; the University of Chicago Law Review; The New York University Journal of Law and Liberty; and, at University College London, both the Center for Law, Economics and Society and the Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics. A self-described originalist, Ginsburg coined the term “Constitution in exile” to refer to decisions in which the canon has not been interpreted as originally understood. As he explained in 2012 to NYU Law Magazine, “no one would put on a Shakespeare play without trying to understand what the words meant 400 years ago.”

After each lecture there will be an in-depth discussion led by moderator Robert Watson. Watson is an award-winning author of more than 40 books on U.S. history and politics. His book “America’s First Crisis” won the book of the year in history at the Independent Publishers’ Awards. He has co-convened a half-dozen national conferences on the American presidency, moderated political debates, and delivered more than a thousand keynote addresses. Watson is the editor of SUNY Press’ popular book series on the American presidents, and a frequent media commentator on CNN, Fox, and The New York Times. Miss the 2017 season?
