On Monday, November 5, Professor Anita Hill will discuss the scholarly legacy of A. Leon Higginbotham Jr. Hill–a professor of social policy, law, and women’s studies at Brandeis University–gained international attention as an expert witness in the confirmation hearings of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Higginbotham, a former member of the faculty at Harvard Law School and the Kennedy School of Government, was chief judge emeritus of the U.S. Third-Circuit Court of Appeals prior to passing away in 1998.

The talk will be held in the Vorenberg classroom at 6:30 p.m. For those who cannot attend the event in person, the speech will be webcast live.

Hill’s lecture is sponsored by Harvard Law School’s Saturday School program. Established in 1988 by Professor Charles Ogletree, the Saturday School provides a forum for students to engage in constructive dialogue with professors, legal practitioners, elected officials, judges, and others.
