Please join us for a symposium on the different outlooks within a partisan political system. The program seeks to harbor a civil dialogue between competing ideologies in the political spectrum. Topics for discussion will center around separation of powers, election reform, the media’s effect on politics, and federal appointments.

The Widener Law Journal (WLJ) will host its annual symposium on February 20, 2017, in the Moot Court Room (A180) of Widener University Commonwealth Law School.
