Where Have All the Judges Gone?
Today, there are over 90 vacancies in the federal judiciary--some of which have been open for years, stalled by partisan battles in Congress. Join the American Constitution Society for a discussion on the impact of these vacancies on the rule of law, and what the legal community can do to remedy the problem. Free lunch provided.
