Professor Robert George, a former judicial fellow of the United States Supreme Court, will continue Lindenwood University’s 2010-2011 Speaker Series at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, 2011.

In addition, he is a recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal and was honored with the Stanley Kelley, Jr., Teaching Award from Princeton’s Department of Politics.
