Discussion Over Division

Discussion Over Division is an innovative new program that matches Scalia Law students with another student with a different political ideology to have a conversation about their beliefs over a meal (provided by the Liberty & Law Center). Just launched for Spring Semester 2019, the program is currently only open to Scalia Law students.

Current Sessions: Monday (3/25/2019) and Tuesday (3/26/2019), starting at Noon in Hazel Hall Room 215. Lunch will be provided.

To participate in Discussion Over Division, please fill out this form.

After you sign-up, you will receive an email letting you know when and where Discussion Over Division Breakout Sessions will be held (there will be several over the course of the semester). We ask that you select one to attend or indicate that you prefer to set up a conversation at your own convenience (in which case you will be matched with someone else with that preference).

At each Breakout Session, we will match you with a student (or a small group of students) of a differing ideology, and we will provide a meal (and a location) for you to have a one-on-one conversation with that fellow student. For those who choose to set up a conversation outside of one of the Breakout Sessions, the Liberty & Law Center will reimburse you for up to $18 per person for your meal (we will let you know who you have been matched with and provide reimbursement instructions via email).

Parameters:
• Must be a current Scalia Law student
• May only participate once this semester
• Agree to provide feedback (3-4 sentence minimum) within two weeks following your Discussion
• For those being reimbursed for their meal, alcohol will not be covered
• Given the matching aspect of the program, it is important that you make every effort to attend the Breakout Session that you have signed-up for. If for some reason you are unable to make it, please email jkoob@gmu.edu as soon as possible.
