Turning Right: The New Supreme Court and Issues of Abortion, Same-Sex Marriage, and Mass Incarceration

September 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Furman recognizes Constitution Day with a lecture focusing on the U.S. Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Constitution and how that might change with the impending confirmation of Brent Kavanaugh.

Constitutional law professor Teresa Cosby and abortion politics specialist Glen Halva-Neubauer will provide insight into what we know about how the court operates, the impact of Roe v. Wade and its possible undoing, and what the rightward shift of the Court might mean for issues such as same-sex marriage and mass incarceration. David Fleming will moderate a question and answer session to follow.
