Faculty Panels To Discuss Future of Supreme Court

Supreme Court
October 16, 2018

As the 2018-19 term gets underway, three panels featuring University of Virginia School of Law faculty will discuss different topics surrounding the future of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The events are open to faculty, students and the Law School community, and are sponsored by the Karsh Center for Law and Democracy at UVA Law.

The center, funded through the generosity of law alumni Martha Lubin Karsh ’81 and Bruce Karsh ’80, aims to facilitate discussion about some of today’s most pressing issues through workshops, symposia and interdisciplinary programming. The Law School created the center to foster respect for the rule of law, civic engagement, civil discourse, the ideals of a plural society, and the values of truth, integrity and ethics.
