UW College of Law Postpones Visit by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch

As the public health situation continues to be of concern regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the University of Wyoming College of Law has made the difficult decision to postpone the much-anticipated visit of United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Originally scheduled to appear on campus Sept. 16-17 in honor of the College of Law’s 100th anniversary, the Justice will now plan to attend in the fall of 2021.

“We want to be mindful of the health concerns in our community, as well as the health of the Justice,” says College of Law Dean, Klint Alexander. “In order to be compliant with the current restrictions the state and the university have in place, we would need to drastically limit the attendees to each event. We hope that by postponing we will be able to accommodate a larger audience in the coming year and keep our community safe.”

The structure of the events will remain the same for the Justice’s visit in 2021 with a public event in the afternoon, and a Gala Celebration in the evening. More details on those events and tickets will be made available at a later date.

“We are grateful to Justice Gorsuch for graciously agreeing to postpone his visit to campus,” says Dean Alexander. “We are disappointed that these unforeseen circumstances prevented us from celebrating our 100 year anniversary of the College of Law in the year 2020, but we are excited that we will still be able to host the Justice next year as we begin a new century of legal education in Wyoming.”
