Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (50+) pres.

Current Issues and the Supreme Court

Liberal and Conservative Views

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group

Liberals and conservatives differ on a wide range of constitutional issues currently being contested in national and state politics, including presidential versus congressional powers, freedom of speech and religion, money in politics, gun rights, abortion policy, equal protection of the law, and LGBT rights. The outcomes of many of these conflicts will be determined by the U.S. Supreme Court.

This lecture-discussion class for those 50 and over will focus on the legal status of these issues rather than on the merits of the respective positions. The vital role of citizens in the constitutional process will be emphasized. Classes will meet Mondays from 1-3 pm from November 11 through December 2. The instructor, Charles Monsma, is a retired Professor of Political Science at Eastern Michigan University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan.
