On October 21, 2021, the Gray Center and the Heritage Foundation co-hosted a special event to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the confirmation of Justice Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court of the United States. This event, consisting of a daytime law symposium and evening lecture, brought together jurists, legal academics and practitioners, including many of the Justice’s former clerks, where we discussed his jurisprudence and impact on the Court over the past three decades.
In a special evening lecture, the inaugural “Justice Clarence Thomas First Principles Award” was presented by Ambassador C. Boyden Gray to Laurence H. Silberman, Circuit Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. This was followed by Donald F. McGahn II’s introduction of Mitch McConnell, Senate Republican Leader, who provided Keynote Remarks. The lecture concluded with Concluding Thanks by Justice Clarence Thomas, U.S. Supreme Court.
