Tobias Gibson, Professor of Political Science,

Westminster College, presents


The Supreme Court Seen Through the Eyes of Evolution


Thursday, March 25, 7 PM, The Highlander Room


As an institution, much of what the Supreme Court does is shrouded in mystery.  It is the only branch of the national government that does not seem to seek out the limelight of the media, and much of its business is open to no one outside the justices who sit on the Bench.  Using the few evolution cases that have been heard by the Supreme Court, this talk will serve as a window to the inner workings of the Supreme Court.   

Tobias T. Gibson is an assistant professor of Political Science at Westminster College.  Prior to his appointment at Westminster, he was assistant professor of Political Science at Monmouth College from 2006-2009.  He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Washington University in St. Louis in 2006.  He teaches courses on American politics, including the Supreme Court, Constitutional Law, and Judicial Process.  He is the author of several articles, books chapters, and encyclopedia entries on the institution of the Supreme Court, public law and democratic theory.
