FREE lecture: Linda Greenhouse: How High Is The High Court?

Zócalo Public Square is a not-for-profit daily Ideas Exchange that blends live events and humanities journalism. We foster healthier, more cohesive communities by tackling important contemporary questions in an accessible, non-partisan, and broad-minded spirit. I always enjoy these free lectures and this one sounds like food for thought.

Today’s U.S. Supreme Court seems at once more present in American life, and more remote. Some of the nine justices have taken higher public profiles, and even offer political commentary on the issues of the day. But the justices have been taking on relatively fewer cases, while selecting those cases that advance a conservative agenda, and the court’s conservative majority seeks to limit the ability of courts at all levels to influence certain areas of American life. Has the court gotten too high, and too removed from the country and its citizens? Or has the court gotten too low, with the justices showing their partisan colors? Linda Greenhouse, former Supreme Court reporter for The New York Times, now Yale Law School’s Knight Distinguished Journalist in Residence, visits Zócalo to assess the current court, and discuss its future.

Moderated by Henry Weinstein, Legal and Journalism Scholar, UC Irvine School of Law

We will meet @ 7:30 in the Murphy Foyer (front lobby) of the Ahmanson Hall. They WILL give out your seats by 7:45 if you are not there to claim your ticket. Parking is free in the north lot, right under the Auditorium, enter on Herscher Way.
