The American Constitution Society will be hosting a Q&A session with Stephen Wermiel, a former Georgia State University College of Law professor, on Thursday, February 10, from 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm in Room 170 of the Urban Life Building (College of Law).
Wermiel recently co-authored the book Justice Brennan: Liberal Champion. The book is the definitive account of the life of the justice who spent 34 years on the Supreme Court of the United States. Wermiel and co-author Seth Stern based most of the book on 60 hours of tape-recorded interviews between Justice Brennan and Wermiel between 1986 and 1990. During the session, Wermiel plans to discuss his interactions with Justice Brennan and what he learned about the Supreme Court.
Currently, Wermiel is a Fellow in Law and Government at American University Washington College of Law. Wermiel has been teaching constitutional law for nearly 20 years. Prior to teaching, Wermiel served as a Supreme Court correspondent for the Wall Street Journal from 1979 to 1991 and as a reporter for the Boston Globe from 1971 to 1979.
