MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA – The 2014 Constitution Day lecture at the West Virginia University College of Law will address challenges to the Constitution in the era of high technology. It will be delivered by attorney Lawrence Rosenberg on Wednesday, September 17, at 4 p.m. in the college’s event hall.
Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
Rosenberg is a partner at Jones Day in Washington, D.C. and director of the United States Supreme Court Clinic at the WVUCollege of Law. He has experience in regulatory, statutory and constitutional litigation, intellectual property, antitrust, international litigation, labor and employment, products liability, and securities law. Rosenberg has been the lead counsel in several matters in the Supreme Court.
Before joining Jones Day, Rosenberg spent five years as a trial attorney in the Attorney General’s Honor Program at the United States Department of Justice. He also served as a law clerk to Judge Jane R. Roth of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
Former West Virginia senator Robert Byrd (1917-2010) sponsored the legislation that established Constitution Day in 2004. The law requires that all publicly funded educational institutions provide special programming on or near that day every year. The College of Law hosts an annual event that fulfills that responsibility for WVU.
