Fordham Law Hosts Bestselling Author Christopher Buckley October 2

September 04, 2008

Fordham Law School hosts bestselling author Christopher Buckley October 2 in a discussion of his latest novel, Supreme Courtship.  In this political satire, the President nominates America’s most popular TV judge to the Supreme Court.  Fordham Law School Dean William Treanor and law professors Thane Rosenbaum and Benjamin Zipursky advised Mr. Buckley on legal aspects of the work. 

The event, sponsored by Fordham Law’s Forum on Law, Culture & Society, will be held Thursday, October 2 at 6:30 pm in McNally Amphitheatre, Fordham Law School, 140 West 62nd Street.  

In a recent article in the New York Law Journal, Mr. Buckley gives Dean Treanor credit for his assistance with the book: “[He] saved me from a number of embarrassments. I’ve very glad to have been spared. Bill was a wonderful collaborator, and I use that term purposely because he provided me with whatever legal sense the book makes.”

Mr. Buckley is the author of 13 books and countless pieces of journalism, satire, and criticism, which have appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New Republic, Washington Monthly, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Esquire.

The event will be moderated by Mr. Rosenbaum, director of the Forum on Law, Culture & Society and is free and open to the public.
