The Livingston Public Library Invites the Public to the Second of its American Politics and Government: A Series in Three Parts.
Monday, September 17, 2012 • 7:52am
"The Supreme Court in the Democratic System" will be presented on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in the Library's program room.
In this segment, Dr. Milton Heumann, Professor and Chairman of the Political Science Department at Rutgers University and Director of the Pace Center for Civil Engagement at Princeton University, discusses the conflict surrounding life-long appointments for Justices and assesses how well the current composition of the Court represents the American population.
The Supreme Court has undergone a gradual, yet significant, demographic shift. From a group originally composed solely of older Protestant males, the court has become more diverse in terms of religion, race, gender, and age.
The program is funded by the Friends of the Livingston Public Library.
This program is free and registration is not required.
