March 03, 2020

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State Law in University Park will host "A Take on the Term with Sarah Harrington and Erin Murphy," beginning at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in the Sutliff Auditorium of the Lewis Katz Building.

The Supreme Court of the United States’ 2019-20 term has the potential to see blockbuster opinions in several areas – from religious liberty, to immigration, to gun rights, to the separation of powers. This panel discussion will focus on the biggest cases of the term with two of the country’s leading Supreme Court advocates, Sarah Harrington and Erin Murphy, both of whom are actively involved in several of the cases to be discussed.

Harrington is a partner at Goldstein & Russell, P.C. in Bethesda, Maryland. She has argued 21 cases in the Supreme Court and has served as counsel or co-counsel in dozens of others. Topics she has handled before the Supreme Court include bankruptcy, constitutional law, criminal law and civil procedure, among others.

Murphy is a partner in the Washington, D.C. office of Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Her focus is on Supreme Court, appellate, and constitutional litigation, and she has argued four cases before the Supreme Court. For her work in successfully arguing McCutcheon v. FEC, she was named American Lawyer’s “Litigator of the Week.”

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided following the panel, and one Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit will be offered. Registration is not required but is highly encouraged; visit to register.
