Activist attorney Clint Bolick's latest accomplishment was his victory in the Supreme Court case of Zelman v. Harris, the case authorizing the use of public school vouchers for religious schools. John Eastman filed a brief in this case for the Claremont Institute. Bolick has successfully litigated cases involving diverse causes such as property and occupational rights, interracial adoptions, and interstate shipping of wine. At the core of his concerns is the protection of the liberty of individuals. The Institute for Justice, which he co-founded in 1991, engages "in constitutional litigation protecting individual liberty and challenging the regulatory welfare state."
In his October 30th luncheon talk at the Claremont McKenna College Athenaeum, Clint Bolick addressed the school voucher case. The overarching theme of his talk was how local governments pose a threat to the natural rights and constitutional liberties of individuals. Bolick's address inaugurates the Center for Local Government's lecture series featuring major figures from the field of public affairs on issues involving local government. This lecture was co-sponsored by the Salvatori Center of Claremont McKenna College.
