Justice Jack B. Jacobs
Before his appointment as a Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court in 2003, Jack B. Jacobs had served as Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery since October 1985. From 1968 until his appointment as Vice Chancellor, Justice Jacobs practiced corporate law and business litigation in Wilmington, Delaware. He holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago (B.A., 1964, Phi Beta Kappa) and a law degree from Harvard University (LL.B., 1967).
In addition to his judicial activities, Justice Jacobs serves as an Adjunct Professor of Law at New York University School of Law, Widener University School of Law, and Columbia University School of Law (beginning 2009). He is a member of the American Law Institute, where he serves as an Advisor to the Restatement (Third) of Restitution, and of the Delaware and American Bar Associations (where he served on the Committee on Corporate Laws of the ABA Business Law Section), and is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.
Justice Jacobs has participated in academic symposia and continuing legal education programs related to corporate and securities law sponsored by various law schools and continuing legal education organizations, and has been a guest lecturer at several American and foreign law schools. Justice Jacobs was Morrison & Foerster Lecturer at Stanford Law School (February 2008); Regent's Lecturer in Residence at the UCLA School of Law (January 2005); Distinguished Jurist Lecturer at University of Pennsylvania Law School (March 2002); and Distinguished Visiting Jurist at the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Program (2008).

He also serves as a member of the Board of Advisors of the Columbia Law School Center on Corporate Governance, and as a member of the Planning Committee of the University of Chicago Corporate Law Institute and the Tulane Corporate Law Institute. Justice Jacobs has also authored and co-authored numerous law review articles addressing various aspects of corporation law, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance.
Justice William J. Brennan Jr. Lecture Series
Few Americans have done as much to shape the constitutional order of vigorous civil liberties and respect for the rule of law as Justice William J. Brennan Jr. In his thirty-four years on the Supreme Court of the United States, Justice Brennan sculpted a vast constitutional jurisprudence and elevated the judiciary’s role in enforcing America’s commitment to individual rights and justice.
When Justice Brennan was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1956, he had already distinguished himself both at the bar and as a New Jersey state judge, rising to the state’s Supreme Court. These professional experiences informed Justice Brennan’s keen appreciation of our federal system and his abiding vision of the independent responsibility of state courts to protect constitutional rights.
The Dwight D. Opperman Institute of Judicial Administration, the Brennan Center for Justice, and New York University School of Law proudly host the Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. Lecture Series on State Courts and Social Justice. The Brennan Lectures provoke reflection upon and celebration of the state judiciary—the bedrock of justice under law in the United States.
