MILWAUKEE — Justice Goodwin Liu, an associate justice of the California Supreme Court, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, April 19, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.

Liu was appointed to the California Supreme Court in 2011. Before joining the state’s highest court, he was a professor of law and associate dean at the UC Berkeley School of Law. Known as a prolific and influential scholar, Liu’s primary areas of expertise are constitutional law, education law and policy and the U.S. Supreme Court. Liu was also nominated by President Barack Obama to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in 2010. But after being denied an up-or-down vote in the Senate, he withdrew his name from consideration.

Liu is the son of Taiwanese immigrants, a graduate of Stanford University and former Rhodes Scholar who attended Oxford University. Liu graduated from Yale Law School in 1998. Liu will discuss his career path (he was a biology major as an undergraduate), his work on the California Supreme Court and the role of the judiciary in an increasingly polarized political environment.

Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online.
