A Yale Law School constitutional law scholar will discuss the constitutional rights of students at an upcoming lecture.

Justin Driver, professor of law at Yale Law School, will deliver the University of Nebraska College of Law’s Lane Lecture at noon on Nov. 8 in the college’s Hamann Auditorium. The talk is free and open to the public.

Driver will cover race, sex, religion, crime, liberty, patriotism and equality, as well as how the Supreme Court’s treatment of the topics has shaped constitutional rights in public schools, according to the university news release. 

Driver teaches constitutional law at Yale and is the author of “The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court and the Battle for the American Mind.” The University Bookstore will sell copies of Driver’s book at the event, and Driver will sign autographs following the lecture.

Driver has previously clerked for Judge Merrick B. Garland, Justice Stephen Breyer and Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. He’s a recipient of the American Society for Legal History’s William Nelson Cromwell Article Prize.
