The Supreme Court: Now and Then

About Our Speaker

A leading historian of the Supreme Court, Professor Lucas A. “Scot” Powe clerked for Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas before joining the University of Texas School of Law faculty in 1971. He is also a Professor of Government and has been a visiting professor at Berkeley, Connecticut, and Georgetown.

His latest book is The Supreme Court and The American Elite, 1789-2008 (2009). Previously, reflecting a split career as an historian and a First Amendment scholar, especially of the electronic media, his three award-winning books were American Broadcasting and the First Amendment (California 1987), The Fourth Estate and the Constitution (California 1991), and The Warren Court and American Politics (Harvard 2000). Additionally he has co-authored Regulating Broadcast Programming (MIT 1994) and written scores of articles. Powe was also a principal commentator on the 2007 four-part PBS series "The Supreme Court."
