October 07, 2022
Join Classics alumna Abigail DeHart, and other Grand Valley alumni and faculty, for stimulating conversation on timely and significant subjects!
Thursday, October 13, noon to 1:15 pm, in the L.V. Eberhard Center (301 Fulton West in downtown Grand Rapids; Room: 201-203 Teleconference Auditorium): Four Grand Valley alumnae, all distinguishing themselves in the practice of law, return to GVSU to speak to their experiences and interests as lawyers, to their formative educational experiences, and to what it has meant to be a woman practicing law. There will be a reception from 11:15am-11:55am in the West Gallery in the Eberhard Center just prior to this event, to which all are invited. Refreshments will be served. The four speakers will also be available after the presentation to talk with individual students or groups of students for another 30 minutes or so. Open to all!
Friday, October 14, noon to 1:00 pm, in the L. William Seidman Center (50 Front Ave SW in downtown Grand Rapids): Nathan Goetting, JD, Abigail DeHart, JD, and John Uglietta, PhD, JD, debate the state of free speech in light of calls to limit it from both the right and the left. Prof. Goetting, former editor of The National Lawyers Guild Review, has recently published what he calls a "radical defense" of free speech in Discourse Magazine. Professor Uglietta, Chair of Grand Valley's philosophy dept., and Abigail DeHart, former clerk for the Ninth Circuit and currently with a prominent DC law firm, will take up Goetting's arguments and add their own. Audience Q&A beginning at 12:45.
Please RSVP in advance for this event, by contacting Professor Michael DeWilde,
