Constitution Day 2021 — A Panel Discussion on Supreme Court Reform

Friday, September 17, 2021
12:00 pm1:00 pm
Virtual via ZOOM

Growing numbers of politicians, activists, and scholars have been calling for reforms to the United States Supreme Court. Not since the 1930s have significant reform proposals gained such prominence in public life; some have even endorsed the idea of "packing" the Court by adding additional seats in an effort to change its ideological balance. This panel discussion will look at the history of Court reform, the various proposals currently being discussed, and whether any of these proposals are likely to be adopted.

Panelists: Chicago-Kent Professors Nancy Marder, Christopher Schmidt, and Carolyn Shapiro
