School-choice litigator to speak at OCU law school

Clint Bolick, director of the Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation at the Goldwater Institute, will speak at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, October 19 at the Oklahoma City University School of Law. His lecture, "State Constitutions as a Bulwark for Freedom," will take place in the Homsey Family Moot Courtroom at Sarkeys Law Center. The lecture is free and open to the public.

A legal pioneer, Bolick has argued and won cases in the United States Supreme Court, the Arizona Supreme Court, and state and federal courts from coast to coast. He has won landmark precedents defending school choice, freedom of enterprise, and private property rights and challenging corporate subsidies and racial classifications. In 2003, American Lawyer recognized Bolick as one of three lawyers of the year for his successful defense of school choice programs, culminating in Zelman v. Simmons-Harris in the U.S. Supreme Court.
