Plans for the ACLU's 2008 Membership Conference are already off to a great start. With Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David H. Souter all confirmed to speak, conference attendees will have the opportunity to hear from one-third of the United States Supreme Court.
Attendees can expect a wide variety of high caliber speakers. A few speaker highlights include:
- Justice Arthur Chaskalson, a former Chief Justice in South Africa, is a leading jurist in constitutional and human rights issues.
- Ariel Dorfman has been called a "literary grandmaster" (Time) and "one of the greatest living Latin American novelists" (Newsweek).
- John Hutson, a retired United States Navy rear admiral, attorney and former Judge Advocate General of the Navy, is a passionate advocate against torture and the abuse of prisoners in U.S. military custody.
