Law panel livestream

Judges and attorneys from Montana and Wyoming will guide a live panel discussion on Wyoming PBS this week, hoping to provide historical context and rules of law when it comes to judicial decisions.

The panel, “A Nation of Laws — A Fair and Impartial Judicial Branch,” will be on Zoom and live-streamed Thursday at 7 p.m. on the Wyoming PBS YouTube Channel and Facebook page.

“With the judicial branch related to many topics in the news including elections, supreme court nominations, criminal trials, and even American’s trust in the judicial system, the goal of the program is to provide a history of the judicial branch,” a press release from Wyoming PBS stated, “from what the framers of the Constitution had in mind to today and how judges depend on our government’s executive branch to enforce court decisions.”

The discussion will be moderated by Craig Blumenshine, senior public affairs producer at Wyoming PBS.

“Courts make decisions every day on what happened, and what should be done about it,” Blumenshine said in the release. “And, judges have a tremendous responsibility to make sure all parties are treated equally, fairly and peacefully under the law to determine what outcomes and punishments should be. We hope to provide a more in-depth understanding of the judicial branch, and we have outstanding panelists who will help guide the discussion.”

The online event is free.
