College Republicans Sponsoring Coulter Talk

The College Republicans, in cooperation with the Clair Boothe Luce Policy Institute, are sponsoring a presentation by best-selling author and conservative pundit Ann Coulter at 7 p.m. April 12 in the Student Union Building Activities Room.

Coulter is the author of seven New York Times best-sellers and is a nationally syndicated columnist. She is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including the “Today” program, “Good Morning America,” “The Early Show,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Hannity,” “The O’Reilly Factor” and HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” She has been profiled in numerous publications, including the April 25, 2005 cover story of Time magazine.

A Connecticut native, Coulter graduated with honors from Cornell University, and received her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review. Coulter clerked for the Honorable Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice.

After practicing law in private practice in New York City, Coulter worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she handled crime and immigration issues for Sen. Spencer Abraham of Michigan. From there, she became a litigator with the Center For Individual Rights in Washington, D.C., a public interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual rights with particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights and the free exercise of religion.
