A Supreme Court Unlike Any Other (Constitution Day 2023 Lecture)

By Craig Duncan, September 5, 2023

"A Supreme Court Unlike Any Other" -- a public lecture on Thursday September 14 at 7pm in Williams 323

Compared to past Courts, today’s Supreme Court is constructed in a fashion far less consistent with the democratic principle of majority rule.

In this free public lecture, Prof. Kevin McMahon will discuss the distinctive nature of the current Supreme Court and the challenges this presents for We the People.

Prof. McMahon is the John R. Reitemeyer Professor of Political Science at Trinity College (Connecticut). He is the author of two award-winning books, Reconsidering Roosevelt on Race (Chicago 2004), and Nixon’s Court (Chicago 2011). His forthcoming book on the current Supreme Court will be published in 2024 by the University of Chicago Press.

This public lecture is sponsored by the Legal Studies Program at Ithaca College, in honor of this year's Constitution Day.
