On October 22, 2018, noted political scientist Stephen Wasby PhD gave a talk at Norwich University titled “Trump and the Law.” Wasby is the author of The Supreme Court in the Federal Judicial System, Race Relations: Litigation in an Age of Complexity, and Borrowed Judges: Visitors in the U.S. Courts of Appeals. He has also served as director of the Law and Social Science Program at the National Science Foundation and editor-in-chief of Justice System Journal. He is a professor emeritus of the University of Albany-SUNY Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy.
In a standing-room-only lecture hall on the Norwich campus, Wasby led a spirited discussion on President Donald J. Trump’s approach to the law and the judiciary. The next day in the WNUB studios, Wasby sat down with three of our students to continue the conversation: Johnathan Tomaso ’20, Thomas Lessard ’19, and Sarah Ingraham ’20. We bring you their discussion in this special episode of “Norwich Odyssey.”
Special thanks to the College of Liberal Arts and Assistant Professor of Political Science Michael Thunberg for making this event possible, and to Ben Zacher for producing this interview.
