Prof. Ifill Suggests Summer Reading to Chief Justice Roberts

During a Q&A session at the 4th Circuit Judicial Conference held at the end of June in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., Chief Justice John Roberts made comments in which he suggests a disconnect between the scholarly work of law faculty and the work of practicing lawyers. UM Carey Law Professor Sherrilyn Ifill took issue with the Chief Justice’s comments and shared some insightful thoughts in response on Concurring Opinion.

Prof. Ifill was in attendance at this conference and had participated on a panel that discussed Supreme Court decisions from the current term, along with other issues, including the need to better educate students and citizens about law and the Constitution.

Each year the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals holds a conference of the judges and attorneys to discuss the business of the courts.
