"Partisanship, the Appointment of Judges, and Judicial Independence as a Core Feature of Rule of Law" — Myra Kraft Open Classroom

Speakers:

  • Peter Bennett, Member of the American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary
     
  • Fernande RV Duffly, retired Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court; Visiting Professor, Northeastern University School of Law

The Spring 2018 Open Classroom will explore the definition of the Rule of Law, what it requires, what happens in its absence, and how it has declined and emerged globally. We will also explore some of the tensions between the Rule of Law and Democratic Governance, focusing on the Rule of Law in time of polarization and technological upheaval (as in the United States but also abroad).

The Spring 2018 Myra Kraft Open Classroom is co-sponsored by the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs and Northeastern’s School of Law.

Wednesday, February 14 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm
