C-Span Civics Bus to Visit Law School

Fordham students who are well-versed in all matters of the United States Supreme Court can get an even better look on Wednesday, Sept. 30 when C-Span’s Civics Bus rolls into town.

The bus, which houses the cable station’s mobile production studio, will be parked outside the Law School on West 62nd Street from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fordham students, faculty and staff and anyone who is interested in the Supreme Court are invited to stop by for a sneak preview of “The Supreme Court: Home to America’s Highest Court,” which will air on the channel on Sunday, Oct. 4.

The original documentary, which kicks off "Supreme Court Week” from Oct. 4 to Oct 11, features ten current and retired Supreme Court justices discussing the role of the court, its traditions and its history.

It also offers a video tour of the building and public spaces like the Great Hall and Supreme Court Chamber, as well as areas accessible only to the nine justices and staff, such as the Robing Room and John Marshall Dining Room.
