President's Conference Room Series: Lunch with a Lawyer

Martin Garbus, Esq., Renowned Constitutional Rights Lawyer

Martin Garbus is one of the country's top trial lawyers, as well as an author and sought-after speaker. Time Magazine called him "legendary" and "one of the greatest trial lawyers in the country". The Guardian declared him "one of the worlds finest trial lawyers". An expert at every level of civil and criminal trial, as well as litigation, Garbus has appeared before the United States Supreme Court in leading First Amendment cases, and his cases have established precedents there and in other courts throughout the country. One case that he filed, Goldberg v. Kelly, resulted in a favorable 5-4 Supreme Court opinion, and was described by Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan as "arguably the most important due process case of the 20th Century".

Below is a link to a recent episode of Charlie Rose where Martin Garbus debates Floyd Abrams on First Amendment issues and the Klinghoffer opera. Students are encouraged to watch the clip for background information before the event.

Date: Wednesday, December 3
