The Rockefeller Center hosted a Student Coffee Hour with Akhil Reed Amar, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University and Law School. Amar has been awarded several honors from both the American Bar Association and the Federalist Society. He has also been favorably cited by Supreme Court justices in more than 30 cases, has regularly testified before Congress for both Republicans and Democrats, and has written for popular publications such as the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic, and Slate.
During the hour, many students were granted the opportunity to discuss their interests and questions about constitutional law with Professor Amar. Referring to several books he has published as well as his own pocket Constitution, Amar addressed students’ concerns with great detail.
