Put a Bork in It: Was Kagan's Evasiveness About Personal Philosophy During Her SCOTUS Nomination the Best Course of Action?

Date: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2010 -
12:30pm to 1:20pm
Location: 
Room 358-G, Hirsch Hall

Associate Professor Lori Ringhand will be joined by Georgia State University professors Eric Segall and Neil Kinkopf to explore the tendency of Supreme Court nominees to reveal little about their personal judicial philosophies since President Reagan's unsuccessful nomination of Robert Bork in 1987. The Kagan nomination hearings will be used as a case study. Hosted by the American Constitution Society, lunch will be served.
