Please join the Vanderbilt Law Review and Branstetter Judicial Speaker Series as we welcome U.S. District Judge Christopher “Casey” Cooper of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to the Law School.
Judge Cooper received his JD from Stanford Law School, where he served as President of the Stanford Law Review. After graduation he served as a law clerk to Judge Abner J. Mikva of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Before his appointment to the bench, Judge Cooper spent time in the U.S. Department of Justice and in private practice in Washington, DC. In 2013, President Obama nominated Judge Cooper to serve as a judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. Since his appointment, Judge Cooper has presided over a number of high-profile, highly important trials, including most recently U.S. v. Khatallah, the trial of the accused Benghazi terrorist.
This event is free and open to the public; lunch will be provided.
