Bernice Donald Delivers 2018 James Madison Lecture
The 2018 James Madison Lecture was presented by Bernice B. Donald of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Her lecture, entitled “Judicial Independence: Collegiality and Dissent in Multi-Member Courts,” took place on Oct. 22, 2018 at NYU School of Law.
The Madison Lectures are the most important lecture series at the NYU School of Law. Begun in 1960, the lectures are designed to enhance the appreciation of civil liberty and strengthen the sense of national purpose.
The series was inaugurated by Justice Hugo L. Black, who propounded his famous theory of the absoluteness of the First Amendment. Since then, more than a dozen U.S. Supreme Court Justices and more than two dozen U.S. Court of Appeals judges have delivered the Madison Lecture.
