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.

 

Most Recent Sessions: Monday (3/25/2019) and Tuesday (3/26/2019)

Registration for Discussion Over Division is closed for the Spring 2019 Semester and will open again for the Fall 2019 Semester.

Several Discussion Over Division sessions will be offered 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 your 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 your meal, subject to meeting the applicable guidelines.

Parameters:
• Must be a current Scalia Law student
• May only participate once a semester
• Agree to provide feedback 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.
