THIS YEAR’S MASON MEMORIAL LUNCHEON WILL FEATURE
PROFESSOR SHERILYNN IFILL, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
SPEAKING ON
Judicial Diversity

 

What judges are saying about Professor Ifill
 

“Professor Ifill is an outstanding legal scholar and speaker on issue of diversity. Her presentation at the joint Circuit Conference was most intellectually challenging speech at the conference. I cannot wait to hear her again at the Mason Memorial lecture.
– Chief Judge Michael J. Davis
       
    “I thought her talk was terrific. It was one of those rare instances when the speaker immediately captures everyone’s attention. I thought her insights on the topic of diversity were very thoughtful and thought-provoking. It is not too often that a convention speech leads to spontaneous discussions between audience members as they leave the room. Her speech did.”
– Magistrate Judge Arthur J. Boylan
“This was one of the best diversity programs I have attended. Prof. Ifill took on some very challenging issues in a first rate presentation which was backed up by careful, sound research and data. She really knows her stuff! This will be a great Mason lecture.
– Magistrate Judge Jeffrey J. Keyes
         
  “I was particularly intrigued by Professor Ifill’s arguments about how readily we accept the concept of geographical diversity as a requirement for the composition of a circuit court but have much greater problem with racial and gender diversity. Her presentation last summer was full of amusing and surprising historical factoids. I predict she’ll continue the tradition of great speakers for Mason lecture.”
– Judge Ann D. Montgomery
