Should Supreme Court Justices Have Term Limits?

February 25, 7:00 PM8:15 PM

Free

Join the Goldfarb Center for our 2021 Cotter Debate to explore this topic with two top experts in the field of constitutional law. Suzanna Sherry, the Herman O. Loewenstein Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University Law School, will discuss the merits of lifetime appointments. The opposing view will be argued by Ilya Shapiro, director of the Robert A. Levy Center for Constitutional Studies at the Cato Institute, who recently authored Supreme Disorder: Judicial Nominations and the Politics of America’s Highest Court (2020). His latest book has a chapter on term limits and discusses Professor Sherry’s provocative article, "Our Kardashian Court (and How to Fix It)", on the need to decelebrify the court.

This virtual event is public and all are welcome to join. Registration is required.
