Roberta Kaplan | Then Comes Marriage: United States v. Windsor and the Defeat of DOMA

Tue, October 13, 2015 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: $15 General Admission, $7 Students

In conversation with Tobias Barrington Wolff, professor of law, University of Pennsylvania

“Involved in some of the most important legal developments of recent years” (The Financial Times), Roberta Kaplan made history as the first lawyer to successfully defeat the Defense of Marriage Act in the U.S. Supreme Court. A partner in the Litigation Department of the New York-based law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, she is also an adjunct professor of law at Columbia University. The American Lawyer magazine named her as one of “The 100 Most Influential Lawyers” in the U.S. and 2013 Litigator of the Year. Then Comes Marriage tells the story of Kaplan’s Supreme Court victory in terms of its personal, political, and legal triumphs.
