Political commentator, law professor Hewitt goes 'On the Issues' at Marquette Law School

September 13, 2017

Members of the media — Please note that our scheduled "On the Issues" session with Hugh Hewitt has been canceled because of a family emergency. The Law School hopes to reschedule this event in the future.

MILWAUKEE — Hugh Hewitt, a political commentator and law professor at the Chapman University Fowler School of Law, will be the featured guest in an upcoming "On the Issues with Mike Gousha," Thursday, Sept. 28, at 4 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School's Eckstein Hall.

Hewitt is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host and host of MSNBC's "Hugh Hewitt Show." The conservative commentator's blog is one of the most visited political blogs in the U.S., and he teaches constitutional law at Chapman. He served for nearly six years in the Reagan administration in a variety of posts, including Assistant Counsel in the White House and Special Assistant to two Attorneys General. He has written for several publications and is the author of a dozen books, including two New York Times best-sellers.

Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School's distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His "On the Issues" series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School's commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha's "On the Issues" conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region's leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online. Members of the media who are interested in attending should contact Chris Jenkins in the Office of Marketing and Communication.
