About the Stephanie K. Seymour Distinguished Lecture in Law
The Stephanie K. Seymour Distinguished Lecture in Law is the only lecture series in the country established by former clerks to honor the judge for whom they served. TU Law Professor Janet K. Levit, former Dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair, served as a clerk for Seymour, a Senior Judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. The lecture highlights the scholarship of an untenured law professor whose dedication and passion mirror that of Judge Seymour.

The topic was very informative. Ms. Broad Leib seems very passionate about the subject. I appreciate her mostly nonpolitical approach to the subject. Her insight as to the need to simply "define" the problem makes sense. Looking forward to see what she does in the future. It would be nice to bring her back in a few years for an update
