Florida Law Review’s Annual Dunwoody Distinguished Lecture in Law

While the subject may not exactly be sports related, I am doing a friend of mine a favor any posting this up.  If you are in Gainesville, FL, you should come check it out:

Yale law professor Akhil Amar will speak on “Bush, Gore, Florida and the Constitution” on Tuesday, March 24 at the University of Florida Levin College of Law as the Florida Law Review’s Dunwody Distinguished Lecturer in Law. To help close the Bush era, Amar will talk about the case that started Bush’s tenure and will also discuss the Florida Supreme Court’s role in the outcome of the case. The lecture will be broadcast via Webcast at The lecture begins at 10am.

After asking my friend how this ties to sports, this was his response:

Gore was on the Harvard Basketball team and Bush was a cheerleader at Yale.  Additionally, Bush owned/operated the Texas Rangers and was instrumental in the Mitchell Report.

Yeah…I guess that works.
