Seminars at Steamboat continues its 15th anniversary season of nonpartisan policy talks with award-winning Supreme Court journalist and lawyer Marcia Coyle addressing “The Nation’s Highest Court: On the Cusp of Change.”

Coyle’s talk starts at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7 in the Strings Pavilion. Free tickets are distributed at 4:45 p.m., and doors open at the same time.

Coyle is the chief Washington correspondent for The National Law Journal, a national weekly newspaper that covers law and litigation. A lawyer as well as a journalist, she has covered the U.S. Supreme Court for 28 years and is a regular contributor of Supreme Court analysis to PBS’ The NewsHour. She is the author of “The Roberts Court: The Struggle for the Constitution.”

Before joining The National Law Journal, Coyle covered state and national government and politics for a Pennsylvania daily newspaper for more than a decade. She has written about the Supreme Court and other legal issues for such publications as Vogue, Ms. magazine and the New York Times Book Review, and she is a contributing author to “A Year in the Life of the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Coyle earned her bachelor’s degree from Hood College, a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, and her law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law.

Her reporting has garnered national journalism awards including the George Polk Award for legal reporting, the Investigative Reporters and Editors Award for outstanding investigative reporting and the American Judicature Society’s Toni House Journalism Award for a career body of work involving coverage of the nation’s courts and justice system.
