Duke University professor to present Constitution Day lecture

Duke University law professor Christopher Schroeder will present a lecture Monday in the IU Maurer Moot Court Room on the political controversy surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

Constitution Day is observed on Sept. 17 each year to commemorate the signing of the Constitution and to celebrate all U.S. citizens, according to the Law Library of Congress' website. 

Schroeder’s lecture, “Supreme Court Nominations in a Polarized Senate” will focus on Supreme Court nominations and the defining moment these decisions can have on our country when politics are in a divided state. 

The speech will  cover what people should expect to come out of these Supreme Court decisions when the nation is polarized.

Schroeder has been involved in several previous Supreme Court nominations and lower court nominations as assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice and as chief counsel for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.

The event is organized by the Provost’s Office, Maurer Law School and Maurer’s chapter of the American Constitution Society and will include a lunch.
