Prof. Brandeis joins faculty response panel for CAFE debate on corporate personhood

Faculty response panel (l to r): Prof. Forrest Nabors, Dept. of Political Science;
Distinguished Professor Emeritus Steve Haycox, Dept. of History; Prof. Jason Brandeis, Justice Center;
Prof. Clayton Trotter, College of Business and Public Policy.

Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Justice faculty, was a member of the faculty response panel for the CAFE debate held February 2 on the topic: "The U.S. should adopt a Constitutional Amendment banning corporate personhood."  The award-winning UAA Speech and Debate Team  argued the issue, which was followed by a facilitated public discussion, and the faculty response.

This event was part of a series of debates and discussions that has been sponsored since 2003 by CAFE - the UAA Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence - as a way to bring together university resources and the Anchorage community in discussions of policies and issues affecting its future.  Prof. Brandeis also participated on the faculty response panel for the Fall 2010 CAFE public policy debate.
