Panel Discussion: Pack the Court?

More than eighty years ago, it was a scandal—a symbol of presidential overreach. But now the idea is making a comeback. The idea? To dramatically increase the number of Supreme Court justices. In this debate, two of the country’s top legal minds will address these and other questions for you.

Time & Location

Sep 11, 12:00 PM - Nov 13, 1:00 PM

About The Event

Over the course of ten Friday lunches, we will read and discuss provocative essays on prudence by two leading thinkers. The first six Fridays will be spent on excerpts from Russell Kirk's Politics of Prudence. For the final four meetings, we will look at Josef Pieper's commentaries on prudence in his book, The Cardinal Virtues. No outside reading is required. The essays are short enough that we should be able to read them as a group and then launch into a good discussion about their implications. Bring your lunch and join us every Friday starting September 11th.

 

We will meet in the courtyard between Batts Hall and Mezes Hall
