Executive development course, 24–27 July 2017

This is an extraordinary opportunity to gain insight into the United States Supreme Court directly from Chief Justice Roberts, alongside Professor Lazarus, one of the United States’ leading legal scholars.

This course will examine how the role and operation of the United States Supreme Court have changed over time. The Court today is different in many ways from the Court that existed at the time of the nation’s founding. This course will consider the individuals and events that prompted these changes as well as their contemporary significance.

Participant numbers are strictly limited.
Date: 24, 25 and 26 July, 9–11am; and 27 July, 9am–12 noon
Venue: Victoria University of Wellington, Pipitea Campus, Wellington
