Professor James R. May will deliver the H. Albert Young Distinguished Lecture in Constitutional Law on Wednesday, April 6th at 4:30 p.m. in the Gold Ballroom at the Hotel DuPont. May’s lecture is entitled “Is the Constitution Failing Nature?”

The H. Albert Young Fellowship in Constitutional Law was endowed in 1998 by the Young Foundation of Wilmington, Delaware, to honor the memory of the late H. Albert Young, Esq. Mr. Young was a highly respected lawyer and former Delaware attorney general known for his unwavering dedication to upholding justice even in unpopular causes. His most famous role came in the aftermath of the Brown v. Board of Education decision when, in opposition to many of his colleagues and in the face of militant segregationists, he insisted that the Brown ruling be immediately enforced in Delaware.

The event, which is open to all students, is free, and offers one CLE credit in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Those interested in attending should contact Connie Sweeney at cmsweeney@widener.edu or 302-477-2177.
