Quinnipiac University School of Law to act as host for talk by Ian Millhiser

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, a student group at the Quinnipiac University School of Law, is holding a lecture by Ian Millhiser of the Center for American Progress at 5 p.m. Feb. 23, in the Grand Courtroom in the School of Law Center, according to a statement.
The lecture, entitled “Doomed to Repeat History: The Tea Party’s Legal Arguments and Why They’re Wrong,” is free and open to the public, the statement said.

Millhiser is a constitutional expert with the Center for American Progress and a leading authority on “tentherism,” a conservative movement that "believes that most of what the federal government does is unconstitutional," the statement said.
"He previously held the open government portfolio for CAP’s Doing What Works project, and was a legal research analyst with ThinkProgress during the nomination and confirmation of Justice Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court," the statement said.

Millhiser clerked for Judge Eric L. Clay of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and has worked as an attorney with the National Senior Citizens Law Center’s Federal Rights Project, as assistant director for communications with the American Constitution Society, and as a Teach For America corps member in the Mississippi Delta, the statement said.
