The Supreme Court plays a vital role in shaping American laws, upholding rights, and balancing the powers of the other two branches of government. Dr. Joyce Francis and Nils Pederson will facilitate this four-part series where they will review the court’s processes and players, explore select major cases from the 2020 term, and discuss the scheduled cases for 2021.
Participants are invited to share questions/concerns about the court during the first session, and the group will seek to address those in the following sessions. No registration is required.
Nils Pedersen is a retired patent attorney and newly admitted member of the WA State Bar. His new interest is estate law and end-of-life legal planning. Dr. Joyce Francis is a retired international relations professor and long-time facilitator of the Great Decisions program at Jefferson County Library.
