About the Event
We live in a time of political polarization that seems to affect every aspect of our republic. The courts that we expect to render justice fairly and impartially are increasingly politicized. When political agendas drive judicial outcomes, we cease to trust our courts and our judiciary. And when we lose faith in our system of justice, democracy itself is at risk.
