Interpretation in the States: Views From the Bench
May 20 @ 1:15 pm - 2:45 pm CDT
The State Democracy Research Initiative invites you to please join us for a panel entitled Interpretation in the States: Views From the Bench on Friday, May 20th from 1:15-2:45pm Central Time.
Featuring State Supreme Court Justices
We are delighted to welcome Justice Anita Earls (North Carolina Supreme Court), Justice Brian Hagedorn (Wisconsin Supreme Court), Justice Jill Karofsky (Wisconsin Supreme Court), Justice Laurie McKinnon (Montana Supreme Court), and Justice Elizabeth Welch (Michigan Supreme Court) for this discussion.
This panel will highlight the perspectives of state supreme court justices from Wisconsin and beyond. Panelists will explore how state courts address pressing questions of legal interpretation—constitutional, statutory, or regulatory—that arise at the state level.
Topics of discussion will include interpretive dilemmas that state courts face, how state approaches to interpretation might differ from federal approaches, and aspects of state law that warrant greater attention from scholars and the public.
Details & Registration
The Interpretation in the States: Views From the Bench panel will take place live at the University of Wisconsin Memorial Union and via livestream, and is approved for 1.5 Wisconsin CLE credits.
