About the Stephanie K. Seymour Distinguished Lecture in Law
The Seymour Lecture is the only lecture series in the country established by former clerks to honor the judge for whom they served.  Janet K. Levit, Dean and Dean John Rogers Endowed Chair, served as a clerk for Seymour, a Senior Judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. The lecture highlights the scholarship of an untenured law professor whose dedication and passion mirror that of Judge Seymour.
