A Candid Conversation With Representative Ted. Deutch (FL) and Prof. Brian Fitzpatrick

Friday, October 06, 2017,
  • Location: Vanderbilt Law School • 131 21st Ave South • Nashville, TN 37203
  • Room: Bennett Miller

Please join the Vanderbilt Law School Program in Law and Government, American Constitution Society, and Federalist Society as they welcome Congressman Ted Deutch to Vanderbilt Law School. Professor Brian Fitzpatrick will talk with Representative Deutch about the state of politics in Washington, as well as a wide variety of legislative issues.

Congressman Ted Deutch represents Florida's 22nd district, home to communities throughout Broward County and southeastern Palm Beach County in sunny South Florida. Now serving his fifth term in the 115th Congress, he is the Ranking Democrat of the House Ethics Committee and a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where he serves as the Ranking Democrat on the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee.

Prior to entering politics, Ted enjoyed a successful career as a commercial real estate attorney. Born and raised in the working class community of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Ted is the youngest son of the late Jean and Bernard Deutch, a World War II veteran who earned a Purple Heart at the Battle of the Bulge. A graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Law School, Ted earned the prestigious Harry S. Truman Scholarship. His passion for serving the community inspired him to run for the Florida State Senate in 2006.

In late 2009, Ted declared himself a candidate in a special election to fill the 19th congressional district seat formerly held by Robert Wexler. He won this election and after Florida underwent redistricting in 2012, Deutch filed for re-election in the 21st congressional district. Ted won the November 6, 2012 general election with no major party opposition.

Snacks and beverages will be provided. This event is open to the Vanderbilt Community.
