Law and Politics Are Hot Topics at the Brooklyn Book Festival
Faculty authors and Dean Allard share their expertise with the public
At the annual Brooklyn Book Festival in September 2017, Dean Nick Allard moderated a panel discussion on legal and political issues related to the Trump administration and the Supreme Court. The panel, Culture, Politics, and the Supreme Court, which aired live on C-SPAN, included Sheryll Cashin, professor of law at Georgetown Law School and author of Loving: Interracial Intimacy in America and the Threat to White Supremacy (Beacon Press, 2017); and Norman Ornstein, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a contributing writer and editor for the Atlantic, and coauthor of One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet-Deported (St. Martin’s Press, 2017).
