Join Chicago-Kent faculty, students, and alumni for the 2020 Palmer Prize Lecture. In this lecture, Thomas Crocker, winner of the 2020 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize, will present the ideas in his award-winning book Overcoming Necessity: Emergency, Constraint, and the Meanings of American Constitutionalism (Yale University Press 2020).
The annual $10,000 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize was established in 2007 by Roy C. Palmer '62 and Susan Palmer to encourage and reward public debate among scholars on current issues affecting the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of governments throughout the world.

Two autographed copies of Professor Crocker's prize winning book will be raffled to students that register for the event.
