I have been asked to forward an invitation to an upcoming symposium at the
University of Minnesota entitled, "The Future of the Supreme Court:
Institutional Reform and Beyond." The date of the symposium is October 21,
2005, and we have a very distinguished group of speakers coming in to talk
about the future of the Court. This is obviously a very timely topic. I
have attached the schedule for the event below. Please do not hesitate to
e-mail if you have any questions about the event. I hope to see you there.
