The event is sponsored by the New York University Journal of Law & Liberty and will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2013, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in Vanderbilt Hall, Greenberg Lounge, located at 40 Washington Square South. A reception will immediately follow the lecture.

Judge Sutton, born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, was educated at William College and Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.  After receiving his JD in 1990, Judge Sutton clerked for Judge Thomas Meskill of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in 1990–1991 and then on the United States Supreme Court for Justices Antonin Scalia and Lewis Powell in 1991–1992.  In 2003, President George W. Bush appointed Judge Sutton to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Prior to joining the Sixth Circuit, Judge Sutton was a partner at Jones Day and served as the Solicitor General of the State of Ohio. Currently, Judge Sutton is also a lecturer at Harvard Law School and the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.  
    
As is the custom with the Hayek lectures, Judge Sutton’s talk will be published in the New York University Journal of Law & Liberty. The Hayek lecture series has addressed many different topics since its inception, but it remains true to its mission: to challenge audiences to help shape a better world.
