Brexit: Financial, U.S., and International Impact
Elliot Posner, Professor and Acting Chair, CWRU Department of Political Science

Alliances among nations are weakening. Why does Great Britain want to leave the European Union? Might other countries leave the E.U. also? How does this affect us? If Britain's tariff-free status with other E.U. members is eliminated, how will U.S. trade and travel in these countries be affected.


Ready to see a change in Ohio? If so, join us at the Friendraiser for Monique Smith, Candidate for State Representative of Ohio District 16. Come and hear her speak about the policies coming out of Columbus and what she plans to do about them.

Ohio District 16 includes the great communities of Bay Village, Fairview Park, North Olmsted, Rocky River, and Westlake.

*RSVP that you are "Going" via Facebook and we will message you the address!

All funds raised through this event support Monique Smith.

Judicial independence, the ability of courts and judges to perform their duties free of influence or control by other branches of government or shifting popular opinion, has been a defining feature of the American Constitutional landscape for centuries. The architecture of judicial independence, however, has never been fully explained or understood.

As long as the foundations of judicial independence have remained sound and the structure has been adequate to support the weight of episodic attacks, there has been no pressing need to fully understand why or how. But that is changing due to developments - including the current Presidents' questioning the legitimacy of judges who disagree with him and giving agencies room to ignore court rulings - that are variously cyclical, sustained, and sudden.

Many believe these developments threaten the future of an independent judiciary in arguably unprecedented ways, and counsel the need for a deeper, and more systemic evaluation of judicial independence and its vulnerabilities. How did the architecture of judicial independence norms begin -and when did they start to erode? Why is independence essential to the role of the judiciary in American government, and how it can be rescued and defended?
