Public Discourse Project

The Public Discourse Project is a cutting-edge program developed by the Liberty & Law Center that seeks to ameliorate partisan divisiveness by fostering civil discourse among students and promoting civic virtue. Launched in Spring 2019, the program brings together students of different ideological and partisan political perspectives for training and one-on-one or small group conversations about their beliefs, issues of importance, and other substantive topics, as well as issue-specific roundtable discussions.

Due to its success, we are actively expanding the program to other law and graduate schools. If you’d like to learn more about bringing Public Discourse Project to your school, please contact us at
