Description

With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace her, Americans have begun to debate the institutional limitations of the Supreme Court more seriously than in nearly a century. This is the second session of a two-part symposium which brings together national academic experts to clarify the terms and stakes of the current debate. The first session, which was held on October 13, 2020, took up the constraints and possibilities of the current political context today, and the proper criteria for evaluating reform proposals. The second session, to be held on March 12, 2021, compares and contrasts some of the most-discussed options for reform, both personnel expansion and alternatives to it. Registration is required for this event.
