The National Constitution Center, located in Philadelphia, will host a discussion on the history of judicial activism.  Judge Kent Jordan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and Professor Geoffrey Stone, a visiting scholar at the Center, will serve as panelists, debating the proper role of the judiciary and the ways in which judges influence public policy.

Audience members will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions.  This event is free, but reservations are required. You can reserve a seat by calling 215.409.6700; reservations can also be made (and more information is available) online at Judicial Activism Reconsidered.  More information about programs at the National Constitution Center generally is available at its web site:
