To commemorate the 1787 signing of United States Constitution, the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law invites the UofL and greater Louisville community to join us for a keynote presentation and discussion by Frederick Lawrence, an American lawyer, civil rights scholar and 10th secretary and CEO of the Phi Beta Kappa Society - the nation's first and most prestigious honor society, founded in 1776.

In his presentation, Lawrence will address: What is a fully functioning democracy? Why must it be preserved, and what role can (and should) universities and law schools play in that enterprise?
