Event Description

Yale@Gateway Series Continues Legal and Constitutional expert, Akhil Reed Amar

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (November 6, 2014) — Gateway Community College (GCC) is pleased to announce that its newly created Yale@Gateway speaker series will continue with noted Law professor, and legal and constitutional expert, Akhil Reed Amar who will speak on The Constitution Today:  Under siege or still holding up just fine?  The talk, followed by a question and answer session, will take place on November 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the college's community room and will be moderated by PBS correspondent and Yale Professor, Paul Solman.


Named among the top 20 contemporary US legal thinkers by a Legal Affairs poll, Amar is the author of several books including The Constitution and Criminal Procedure: First PrinciplesThe Bill of Rights: Creation and ReconstructionAmerica’s Constitution: A Biography, and in 2012, America’s Unwritten Constitution: The Precedents and Principles We Live By. The Supreme Court cited Amar's work in over 20 cases, including the landmark 1998 decision in Clinton v. City of New York, which ruled the presidential line-item veto unconstitutional. Amar is the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University where he teaches in the Law School and Yale College. His course on constitutional law is one of the most popular undergraduate offerings at Yale College.


Amar was a consultant to the television show The West Wing, on which the character Josh Lyman refers to him in an episode in Season Five, and he has made several appearances on Comedy Central's Colbert Report.

The Yale@Gateway series is free and open to the public and should be of particular interest to students and professors in the fields of Law, Business, Economics and Business Law.  For more information, contact GCC Business Professor Lorraine Li at or call (203) 285- 2285.   Gateway Community College is located at 20 Church Street in New Haven.

A Bold New $45 Million Partnership Takes Aim at the Health Gap

A vigorous and unprecedented partnership between LISC and ProMedica, an Ohio-based integrated health system, is set to inject tens of millions of dollars to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in underinvested Toledo neighborhoods. The collaboration, which will serve as a national model, will fund opportunities for employment, income-building, education, community safety and affordable housing—all the social determinants that shape a person’s health. “When we connect [the] talent and resources [of the healthcare industry] to the expertise of community developers, we have an opportunity to drive changes that help people live better—literally adding years to their life,” said LISC CEO Maurice Jones. “That’s incredibly powerful.”
