The Trump Court:  How It Has and Will Change America

Professor Lebow will provide the Lawyers’ Affinity Group with her analysis of the game changing decisions recently handed down by the United States Supreme Court and their far reaching impact on the legal landscape in areas of the law well beyond the subject matter of the opinions.  Do not miss this presentation by a UCLA professor possessed of many years’ experience with the United States Supreme Court and other branches of our Federal government. 

Meet the Speaker:

Cynthia C. Lebow is a Senior Continuing Lecturer in the UCLA Department of Political Science, where she teaches the curriculum of course offerings on the Supreme Court and constitutional law, including civil rights and civil liberties. She has also been a Lecturer at the UCLA School of Law, where she has taught a course in Legislative Process and Statutory Interpretation.  She previously served as the General Counsel and Staff Director of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee under then-Chairman Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D-DE), and as a senior political appointee in the Civil Division of the United States Department of Justice during the Clinton Administration.   She is a cum laude graduate in Political Science from UCLA, and subsequently earned a J.D. degree from the UCLA School of Law.  Lebow previously served as the Associate Director of the RAND Institute for Civil Justice and practiced law in Washington DC and Los Angeles with the highly regarded national law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, where she co-directed the firm’s legislative practice and government affairs group. Lebow has also taught upper-division political science courses on federalism and executive power and Honors Collegium seminars on privacy and national security.  During her tenure, she conceived, developed, produced, and participated in a day-long national symposium on the subject of privacy and national security, jointly sponsored by UCLA Department of Political Science, UCLA School of Law, and UCLA Office of Information Technology, and organized a similar multi-departmental conference on the Constitution in the Age of Technology.  Lebow is a Director of the Law School’s annual Supreme Court review entitled “Whither the Court,” dedicated in memory of her late husband, Allan Lebow, also a UCLA political science and law grad.
