IU Welcomes Birch Bayh

As many of you may already know Birch Bayh, former U.S. Senator and alumni of the IUB Law School (JD with distinction, 1960) will be giving a talk tomorrow on the separation of church and state.

Senator Bayh served in Congress from 1963-1981. During that time he wrote two Constitutional Amendments, the 25th and the 26th, which deal with presidential succession and the voting age respectively. He was also instrumental in Title IX of the Higher Education Act, which very famously gives women equal opportunities at federally funded educational institutions.

We are very excited to welcome Senator Bayh back to IU, and highly encourage everyone who can to take advantage of the chance to see this remarkable man. He will be speaking tomorrow, Sept. 25, from 3:30-4:30 PM in the Moot Court Room. His talk is called “Separation of Church and State: As Important Today as in the 18th Century.” Hope to see you there!
