Theodore Olson to speak to Boston legal group
BOSTON (AP) — Former U.S. Solicitor General Theodore Olson will be the keynote speaker at the Boston Bar Association’s annual meeting.
Olson was solicitor general from 2001 to 2004 under President George W. Bush. He has argued 60 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2010, Time Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world for his work in challenging California’s Proposition 8 and spearheading the defense of gay marriage.
Olson is scheduled to speak Friday at the bar association’s annual meeting luncheon at the Boston Convention Center. Approximately 1,300 members of Boston’s legal community are expected to attend.
