Although we will have space for additional guests during the afternoon portion of the symposium, the event is sold out for the conversation with Justice Kennedy. We will be live-streaming the conversation in a classroom on campus as overflow. We welcome members of the Hastings community to join us at 9:30am in Room A in 198 McAllister St. to view the live stream. Unfortunately we are not able to broadcast outside the school.
