The Carmen and Louis Warschaw Distinguished Lecture presents: A Russian Jewish Kid from Shanghai takes on the American President- A Conversation with Professor Laurence Tribe and Professor Robert Shrum.
Description: Harvard's legendary author, appellate advocate, and University Professor of constitutional law- whose students and research assistants have included President Barack Obama, Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Elena Kagan, Chief Judge Merrick Garland, and Congressman Adam Schiff- reflects on his Jewish roots; his good fortune in migrating with his refugee family from Shanghai to San Francisco in 1947; and his struggles to defend core principles of justice and human rights both in helping other nations (including the Czech Republic and South Africa) frame their 20th century constitutions and in enforcing the U.S. Constitution against violations by states and the federal government.
