ABOUT THE EVENT

During this lecture, Dr. Ganesh Sitaraman, who holds the New York Alumni Chancellor’s Chair in Law at Vanderbilt Law will discuss and address the recent calls for reforming the Supreme Court. Presidential candidates have called for reform; members of Congress and activists have called for expanding the size of the Court; scholars have argued for democratizing the Court by limiting its power.

Dr. Sitaraman has written some of the leading articles analyzing Supreme Court reform (along with coauthor Dan Epps). He will speak about why proponents think reform is necessary and discuss the pros, cons, and viability of proposed reforms.
