The mission of "Neil Asks" is to extend the legacy of L. Neil Williams,Jr., an Atlanta-based leader in the fields of law, education and the arts. We seek to honor his example of asking important questions, listening to disparate views, and inspiring others to ask the questions that would guide them toward greater understanding, innovation, service, and hope. Alumni, students, and other members of the Duke community and their special guests are invited to a panel discussion featuring Samuel A. Alito, Jr., Associate Justice, Supreme Court of the United States; Daphne Barak Erez, Justice, Supreme Court of Israel; and Wallace B. Jefferson, Former Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Texas. The program will be moderated by Dean David F. Levi. Reception to follow. Questions? Please contact Anna Walker at 919-613-7214 or email@example.com.
