GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Federalist Society's Leonard Leo, who has played a crucial role in advising the George W. Bush and Donald Trump administrations on Supreme Court nominees, will be at the Grand Rapids-based Acton Institute on May 11 to deliver a talk titled, "A Judicial Renaissance? The Trump Administration & the Future of the Federal Judiciary."
The talk begins at 12 noon. Registration for the event is available online at https://acton.org/event/2017/05/11/leonard-leo
In an April 17 New Yorker profile, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that, "during the Administration of George W. Bush, Leo also played a crucial part in the nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Now that Gorsuch has been confirmed, Leo is responsible, to a considerable extent, for a third of the Supreme Court."
Leo is the executive vice president and a member of the board of the Washington-based Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, an organization of around 70,000 individuals that is premised on advancing limited, constitutional government. In that capacity, he has helped to build a nationwide network of lawyers, judges, and business leaders who seek to foster the application of America's Founding principles through various projects.
In addition to his work with the Federalist Society, Leo has served as an outside adviser to President Trump on the Supreme Court and related judicial selection and confirmation issues. He has helped lead a number of outside efforts in support of the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and organized the outside coalition efforts in support of the Roberts and Alito U.S. Supreme Court confirmations in 2005-2006.
