(West Palm Beach, FL) – The O’Keeffe Pre-Law Studies Program will be kicking off its Speaker Series Featuring Attorney Scott Bullock, “Eminent Domain without Limits?” on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in the Page Family Center for Performing Arts on the campus of The King’s Academy in West Palm Beach. The event will be an interactive afternoon, featuring attorney Mr. Bullock, lead attorney for Susette Kelo in the landmark case of Kelo v. City of New London.
Bullock, now President and General Counsel for the Institute for Justice, along with Plaintiff Susette Kelo, will reflect on this case and its progression through the United States Supreme Court. Clips from the recent feature-film, Little Pink House, will be shown as the audience considers the ripple effects of the Court’s stance on the Fifth Amendment through these facts.

To have nationally-recognized experts such as Scott Bullock share with students in the program plants seeds of possibilities for the future generation of lawyers. This kick-off event will allow students to connect with a famous U.S. Supreme Court case and Constitutional principles in a meaningful, interactive way.”- Denise Brown, Esq., O’Keeffe Pre-Law Studies Program Director
