  • Judge Robert Bork’s experience as a Supreme Court nominee is legendary, and the former Solicitor General, acting Attorney General and Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals will bring to the media event all the wit and wisdom that led to two New York Times best-sellers.
  • Professor Gerard Bradley of the Notre Dame School of Law. Bradley is a noted scholar in the field of constitutional law and a former assistant district attorney from New York County. He is also well-known for his instruction in Notre Dame’s exceptional trial advocacy program, in the top 10 in the nation.
  • William Saunders, Senior Vice President of Legal Affairs and Senior Counsel of Americans United for Life, an expert on Constitutional law, who holds a J.D. from Harvard University. A former law school professor, he has twice been featured in Harvard’s Guide to Conservative Public Interest Law, and as a member of the Supreme Court bar, has authored numerous legal briefs in state, federal, foreign and international courts.

AUL’s “Kagan File” – a comprehensive body of legal analysis on Kagan’s record – can be accessed at www.aul.org. It has been used and distributed nationwide as part of efforts to block a nominee with a pro-abortion, agenda-driven judicial philosophy.
