Advance Notice

Mitt Romney to speak, sign book

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will be on campus Tuesday, March 30, at 7 p.m., in Glenn Memorial Auditorium, as part of a tour for his book, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness."

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue will introduce the former contender for the Republican Party presidential nomination. A question-and-answer session will be from 8 to 8:30 p.m., followed by a booksigning.

The Emory Law Federalist Society and Emory College Republicans are sponsoring the lecture.

Though the main focus is his book, “the Federalist Society is a non-partisan organization — although it is conservative/libertarian in nature — so we requested that he focus some of his attention on the court system in general or judicial philosophy,” says Alan Holcomb, Society president.

We invited Governor Romney to Emory because his visit gives the Federalist Society and the College Republicans a unique opportunity to expose Emory law students, as well as the general Emory community, to ideas they normally wouldn't hear at our nation's elite universities. Mr. Romney is not only a successful businessman and politician, but also has a law degree, so his perspective on our legal system holds great weight as we debate the future of our judiciary," Holcomb notes.

The event is free and open to the public. No ticket is required, but attendees are encouraged to register. Seating is first-come, first-served with reserved seating for law students. Admittance for students begins at 6:30 p.m.
