PLYMOUTH — Is gay marriage legal? Should the government eavesdrop on your phone and email conversations? Should drones target American citizens? These vexing legal questions will be front and center Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m. as Plymouth State University celebrates Constitution Day.
Retired NH Supreme Court Justice William Batchelder and the former President of the American Civil Liberties Union and Law Professor Nadine Strossen will have a conversation about the Bill of Rights and recent Supreme Court decisions to celebrate Constitution Day with PSU students and faculty. The event is free and open to the public and takes place at Heritage Commons on the campus of Plymouth State University.
PSU Criminal Justice Professor Mark Fischler said the event will be a thought-provoking discussion about topics affecting every American citizen.
"Justice Batchelder and Nadine Strossen are two of the most selfless and wise people I know," Fischler said. "They both have demonstrated courage in confronting difficult constitutional questions throughout their illustrious legal careers."
