Former Acting SG Neal Katyal Shares Stories at UChicago Law
Neal Katyal of Hogan Lovells US LLP recently gave a talk at the University of Chicago Law School about what it means to be a lawyer and why working in law is a “personal calling.”
Mr. Katyal served as the Acting US Solicitor General from May 2010 until June 2011. He has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court 37 times, more than any other minority attorney in history, a record previously held by Thurgood Marshall. He argued the “travel ban” case on behalf of the State of Hawaii against President Trump, and more than a decade earlier he successfully challenged the policy of military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay Naval Station, representing Osama bin Laden's chauffeur in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld.
Mr. Katyal shared these stories and others with students, as well as insight into his personal beliefs that led him to work in law.
