The Honorable Samuel A. Alito, Jr., Associate Justice, Supreme Court of the United States, will deliver the First Annual Judge Leonard I. Garth Lecture at Rutgers School of Law–Newark on November 15, 2011 at 4 pm. His topic is “The Craft of Judging.”

The Judge Leonard I. Garth Lecture Series has been established by his law clerks to honor Judge Garth, U.S. Circuit Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Justice Alito, a Trenton native and graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law School, clerked for Judge Garth from 1976 to 1977. He then served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of New Jersey; Assistant to the Solicitor General, U.S. Department of Justice; Deputy Assistant Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice; and U.S. Attorney, District of New Jersey. He was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1990. President George W. Bush nominated him as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and he took his seat in January 2006.

Judge Garth is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School. He was in private practice in Paterson before his 1969 nomination by President Richard M. Nixon as a judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. He was elevated to the Third Circuit in 1973 and assumed senior status in 1986.
