timely event on supreme court nomination hearings

we continue to hear from libraries about the types of events they are offering. i just received an e-mail from the university of wisconsin-eau claire library describing their timely event:

On September 20, UW-Eau Claire will host a roundtable discussion, "Constitutional Law for a Changing Supreme Court." The roundtable will feature short presentations by three faculty members from the history and political science departments. They will discuss how John Roberts and a President Bush-nominated associate justice could impact constitutional law in cases involving the First Amendment, privacy, criminal rights and federalism. The panel will provide a historical perspective on the sometimes contentious nomination process of a Supreme Court justice. There also will be a question and answer period with the panel.
