2018 American Experience Week: July 2 - July 6

Dr. Akhil Amar

The American Experience Committee is pleased and excited to announce Dr. Akhil Reed Amar as the 2018 American Experience lecturer.  The five-day series will take place July 2-6 in 2018 in Voorhies Auditorium.  His lecture on July 4 will take place at 11:00 following the parade.  The other morning lectures will run from 10-11:00 as usual.

Professor Amar first came to Bay View with his wife and then young family in 2007. He came again in 2012; and, now, he has graciously agreed to return to lecture in Bay View. He comes as the Sterling Professor of Constitutional Law and Political Science at Yale, teaching both in Yale’s School of Law and in its undergraduate College. In 2008 he received Yale’s DeVane Medal for teaching excellence. In 2017 he received the American Bar Association Outstanding Scholar award. He is recognized as among five of the most cited legal scholars in America.  His 2012 book Precedents & Principles as well as his 2015 The Law of the Land can provide a sense of the message he will bring to Bay View and its wider community. We all are honored that Akhil Amar will visit us again.
