I have a feeling that this debate is going to be excellent...
Debate: Constitutional Rights and Other Legal Issues in the War on TerrorPosner and Stone know each other very well, so I'm expecting the debate to be very polished and nuanced. I'm sure they won't hold back either.

And to end the night Monday...
Annual Reception & DinnerThat's quite a line up: an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, the former Chief Justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and the Solicitor General. Unfortunately, I am a broke law student, so I can't attend any of the food-related events. They're a little too pricey for me.

I'm also in a bit of a jam with scheduling. This event has been scheduled during the exam period here at MULS. I have an exam Monday night and Tuesday night. What to do, what to do... I'm going to see if I can fit a few of those panels into my schedule. I really want to go, but it might not be possible. School comes first. We'll see. If you can attend, I highly recommend that you do. This is quite the collection of brilliant legal minds.
