Democracy Forum. The Supreme Court and Democracy

WERU 89.9 FM Blue Hill
Friday, June 17, 2022
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

This month, in line with the end of the SCOTUS term, we'll talk about the courts as protectors of democracy, judicial philosophy and constitutional interpretation, the authority and power of the court, and the peril of the court being political or even perceived as such. We might like to include ideas about court packing, expanding the courts,  and waning public confidence in the Court. 

Special Guests:

  • Richard H. Pildes, Sudler Family Professor of Constitutional Law, New York University School of Law
  • Maron Sorenson, Assistant Professor of Government, Dept. Government and Legal Studies, Bowdoin College

LWV-Downeast hosts a monthly radio program on democracy in cooperation with WERU FM.
