Plymouth Ct.,Chicago. Co-sponsored by Baker & McKenzie and WBEZ-FM, this year’s program, “Behind the Marble, Beneath the Robes,” is offered as part of the law school’s 100th anniversary celebration.

Totenberg will make the nine justices and their predecessors “real” people by examining their personal traits, political views and controversial decisions of high profile cases. Her talk is filled with wit as she shares her affection for the nation’s highest court.

Totenberg led the news industry with her work in the Monica Lewinsky scandal and Clinton impeachment hearings. Her work in 1991 on the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill allegations led to a subpoena by the United States Senate’s Special Independent Counsel Peter Fleming. She has been a correspondent for National Public Radio since 1975 and over the years has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Silver Baton.
