Please join the Political Science and Public Administration Department on Friday, September 17, at 10:00 a.m. in Bulger Communication Center 214 as we explore constitutional law as a form of public discourse in observance of Constitution Day 2021.
The following department faculty members will serve as our distinguished panelists:
Now in its 234th year, the U.S. Constitution is far from a systematic body of instructions for how to run a country. The text is rather brief, frequently vague, and aspirational. This document is not the end of the conversation but a beginning.
A Q&A will follow the discussion. Join us for an informative and nuanced reflection on the enduring significance of the U.S. Constitution to American life!
The event will also be available live via Zoom:

All are invited to join this year's Buffalo State College Intercollegiate Moot Court team! Please come to Classroom Building B108 at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, September 16, when Mr. Bill Altreuter and Dr. Peter Yacobucci, team co-coaches, will outline how Moot Court competition works and what the issues are for this year's competition. If you have any questions, please email Dr. Yacobucci.
Please join us for an Intercollegiate Moot Court Team Information Session on Thursday, September 9, at 6:30 p.m. in Bulger Communication Center 214.
Moot Court is a wonderful introduction to legal thinking and a legal career. Plus it is lots of fun! You do not need any legal background or specific subject knowledge. All you need is the willingness to work with others to learn how to argue well and become a polished appellate litigator.
Moot court simulates appellate argument before the U.S. Supreme Court. The team will prepare and compete in at least one pre-regional tournament before competing in the American Moot Court Association's official Midwest Regional Tournament in November 2021. This year's case involves whether the federal government can mandate vaccinations in possible violation of religious liberty enshrined in the First Amendment and the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Co-coaches William Altreuter, local attorney and partner at Altreuter Berlin, and Peter Yacobucci, associate professor of political science, will be present to answer questions. If you cannot attend the information session but wish to join, please email Dr. Yacobucci for more information.
