Widener Law and The Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) are again partnering to continue a special series of forums concerning law and government. The second forum in the series, which will discuss the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court of the United States, will be held at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster on Thursday, Oct. 18.

A panel including Stephen K. Medvic, associate professor and chair of the government department at Franklin & Marshall College; Stanley M. Brand, partner of the Brand Law Group and former counsel to U.S. House of Representatives; Michael Dimino, associate professor at Widener Law School and book author; Robert Power and G. Randall Lee, Widener Law School constitutional law professors, will discuss the impact of the Citizens United case against federal restrictions on campaign contributions and the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in that case.

The forum is free and open to the public. PCN will tape the panel discussion starting at 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18. The event will be held in the Woods Memorial Meeting Room at the Schnader Field House within the Alumni Sports & Fitness Center on the campus of Franklin & Marshall.

The event is the second of four special law and government forums. The first forum, which was taped in mid-September at Widener Law in Harrisburg, focused on federalism and the Pennsylvania state constitution.

The show will air on PCN on Thursday, Oct. 18 at 9 p.m. and again Sunday, Oct. 21 at 3 p.m.
