The Annual Distinguished Lecture

Each year, a noted legal scholar presents a timely lecture at BU Law. The Boston University Law Review then publishes the Annual Distinguished Lecturer’s presentation.

On October 2, 2014, at 12:45 p.m., Heather K. Gerken, J. Skelley Wright Professor of Law at Yale Law School, presented the Annual Distinguished Lecture: “The Interlocking Gears of Rights and Structure: Why the Critics are Wrong About U.S. v. Windsor.” Professor Gerken argued that federalism and rights often work together to move society forward. Her paper will be published in an upcoming volume of the Boston University Law Review.
