Lunch with Joan Biskupic

Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 11:30 AM · $5.00 USD

THURSDAY, MAY 11TH - WIL LUNCH

UCI BUSINESS SCHOOL

 Joan Biskupic: The Supreme Court 

What can we expect now?

Don't miss this opportunity to hear one of the nation's leading

experts on the U.S. Supreme Court

Joan is spending a portion of the academic year as a Visiting Professor at the UCI Law School on a one-year sabbatical from her position at Reuters where she is an editor in charge of Legal Affairs. 

Joan has recently joined CNN as legal analyst and Supreme Court biographer. She has covered the Supreme Court for 25 years and has written several books on the Court, including books on Sonia Sotomayor, Antonin Scalia, Sandra Day O’Connor, and currently, Chief Justice John Roberts. She was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2015. 

Before joining Reuters, she was the Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post and for USA Today. She is a regular panelist on PBS’s Washington Week. She is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center. 

Joan has agreed to take time out of her incredibly busy schedule to talk to us. Her life has been overloaded for the past year due to the on-going turmoil on the Supreme Court since the death of Antonin Scalia, keeping her valuable time absorbed with speeches and interviews, attending Congressional hearings, and writing articles, plus of course her classes at the UCI Law School.
