Restoring Justice: The Legacy of Edward Levi
Tuesday, April 30, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (CDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
When President Gerald Ford nominated renowned lawyer and legal scholar Edward Levi to be United States Attorney General, Levi took over an office that had been marred by the corruption of the Watergate scandal. Levi's efforts to bring transparency, independence and integrity back to the Justice Department restored public confidence at a pivotal stage in U.S. history, and in so doing, established a standard by which future Attorneys General would be measured. To mark the publication of the new book, "Restoring Justice: The Speeches of Attorney General Edward H. Levi" by Jack Fuller, a distinguished panel will join us to discuss his impact on the office and its evolution. Formal remarks by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will be followed by a panel discussion featuring John Ashcroft, former AG and U.S. senator; Jack Fuller, author of "Restoring Justice: The Speeches of Attorney General Edward H. Levi" and former special assistant at the U.S. Department of Justice; and moderator Geoffrey Stone, the Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago Law School. PLEASE NOTE: Large bags are not permitted at the event. Coat check will be provided during check-in.
