    From 7:00pm to 8:30pm

    Citizens may at times disagree over the amount of judicial power, but are we familiar with its source and its scope as currently defined by law? Is the separation of powers today what our Founders envisioned? And while citizens head to the voter booths to cast ballots for their executive and legislative state and local leaders, should they, too, vote for their judges? This lecture examines why citizens should care about the judiciary and will offer insight into current issues involving local, state, and federal courts.

  • Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton: Conflict and the Constitution 
    From 7:00pm to 8:30pm

    A meeting and debate between two of the most controversial founding fathers, Jefferson and Hamilton, center on the topics most relevant to their day and to ours: State versus Federal authority in government, the framing of the Constitution and its interpretation, the establishment of the First National Bank and its constitutionality, and the people’s voice in government. The differing viewpoints between Jefferson and Hamilton about the success or failure of the Articles of Confederation and the proper foundations of a new government foreshadow the establishment of our two-party system. Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson Interpreters engage in a lively debate that exposes and explains the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and illuminates the impetus behind the move toward a Constitutional Congress and the resultant drafting of the Constitution. The program examines the need for balance between State’s rights and a centralized government while giving audiences a taste of what the negotiations were really like. Throughout the program we come to see how the relationships between key figures, and the need for compromise, between two opposing factions resulted in the development of the imperfect, but ever evolving, government we have today.
