Joan E. Bowes – James Madison Distinguished Speaker Series

Continuing a family passion for learning, longtime La Jolla resident and civic activist Joan E. Bowes established the Joan E. Bowes-James Madison Distinguished Speaker Series through the School of Law to inspire law students and other members of the San Diego community and promote the open exchange of ideas. Bearing the name of James Madison—fourth president of the United States and “Father of the Constitution”—this annual series brings distinguished speakers from the fields of law, diplomacy, government and politics to the University of San Diego.
