On Friday, March 4 at noon in the Halls of Fame Room in Carroll Hall, the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy will host an interdisciplinary lunch open to faculty and graduate students from across the UNC system. UNC Political Science Professor Kevin McGuire will address Scalia’s legacy and the highly partisan discussion surrounding Scalia’s replacement on the Court. Professor McGuire teaches courses on the U.S. Supreme Court and American constitutional law.  His current research interests include the psychological influences on the justices’ decisions, content analysis of the Court’s written opinions, measuring the ideology of the Court’s case outcomes over time, and compliance with judicial policy.  For the 2015-2016 year, he is serving as Chair of the Organized Section on Law and Courts of the American Political Science Association.
 
A free lunch will be served to all who register below by Wednesday, March 2.
