The Court of Chancery is a non-jury trial court that serves as Delaware's court of original and exclusive equity jurisdiction, and adjudicates a wide variety of cases involving trusts, real property, guardianships, civil rights, and commercial litigation.

Strine, a UD alumnus, was appointed chancellor in June 2011 after having served as vice chancellor since 1998.

Now in its 11th year, the speaker series brings an esteemed cadre of legislators and experts to campus to address pressing issues and trends in public policy.

This year’s series focuses on “Leadership, Service and Policy,” and U.S. Rep. John Carney, an alumnus of the master's in public administration program, delivered the first lecture on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Edward Freel, a policy scientist in the Institute for Public Administration, calls the series “an opportunity to meet, hear from and interact with practitioners and academics in a range of different issue areas.”
