UNLV Hosting Free Lecture Series Before Presidential Debates

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is beginning two free lecture series this week, ahead of the upcoming U.S. presidential candidate debates — including the final Oct. 19 face-to-face between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump at UNLV.

Campus officials say the public is invited to all nine talks, starting with a University Forum Lecture Series presentation at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

UNLV Boyd School of Law Professor Ian Chamberlin Bartrum will focus on late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and the judicial philosophy of constitutional originalism.

A 1 p.m. Thursday lecture by David Zarefsky, professor emeritus of the Northwestern University School of Communication, will be part of the Presidential Debate Lecture Series.

It'll focus on the contrast in the debates in 2012 between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
