Event Information:
Date: Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014
Time: 12:15 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Christian Schneider and Capital Times associate editor John Nichols will be the featured guests in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

With just a week to go before Election Day, two well-known observers of the Wisconsin political scene will join us to talk politics. What should we expect Nov. 4, and why?

In addition to his work with the Madison newspaper, Nichols is the author of seven books on politics and the media and serves as Washington correspondent for The Nation. Schneider is a former policy analyst in the state legislature, a former senior fellow at the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute and a contributor to National Review.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
