Democracy's Last Defense: Keynote Address by Former Senator and U.S. Attorney Doug Jones

Hosted by Hon. Richard Ginkowski, Pleasant Prairie, WI

Political polarization and intransigence are among the forces threatening a fair and independent judiciary -- so says former United States Senator and federal prosecutor Doug Jones, the keynote speaker at the National Judicial College's "Democracy's Last Line of Defense" symposium in Chicago on why and how to preserve the rule of law and an independent, impartial judiciary.

This is the first in a series of episodes taken from remarks at the symposium held on May 26 and presents highlights from Senator Jones' keynote address.
