A Conversation on the Constitution: Judicial Independence

On September 18, 2006 by Schnader

On September 18, 2006, Judge Timothy Lewis was a panelist following the screening of “A Conversation on the Constitution: Judicial Independence,” a DVD featuring Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy, and Sandra Day O’Connor, at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. In the video, Pennsylvania and California high school students question the justices on the Constitution. The justices discuss the ways that the Constitution safeguards the role of judges so that they, in turn, can safeguard the rights of minorities and those with unpopular views.
