“No person in this country, no matter how high or powerful, is above the law, and no person in this country is beneath the law.”—Justice Samuel Alito
The Claremont Institute is pleased to announce that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito will be the honoree and keynote speaker at the 2017 Annual Dinner in Honor of Sir Winston S. Churchill. Justice Alito will also be presented with the Claremont Institute’s Statesmanship Award.
Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Justice Alito is a graduate of Yale Law School and a former law clerk for Judge Leonard I. Garth of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He has served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, Assistant to the Solicitor General, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, and U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey. He was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1990, and President George W. Bush nominated him as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2005. He took his seat on January 31, 2006.
In his decade on the Court, Justice Alito has distinguished himself as a great defender of the Constitution, staking out important ground in the areas of federalism, the administrative state, and free speech. He has been a leading voice in calling for the reconsideration of many of the faulty doctrines and precedents against which Claremont has been fighting for many years. With the future of the Court and the rule of law hanging in the balance, the time could not be better to hear from a champion of the Constitution like Justice Alito.
