Is it constitutional to teach intelligent design in public schools?  That question will be the subject of a debate sponsored by the Federalist Society of the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law on Wednesday, March 25.

The debate will be held in The Zone of the FedEx Institute of Technology on the U of M campus. A reception will begin at 11:30 a.m., followed by the debate from noon to 1:30 p.m.  The free event is open to the public.

Professor Johnny Buckles of the University of Houston School of Law will argue that the teaching of intelligent design is constitutional; Memphis attorney Bruce Kramer, a local representative of the American Civil Liberties Union, will argue that it is not constitutional.  Shaye Mandle, executive director of the FedEx Institute, will serve as moderator.

Parking is available in the adjacent Fogelman parking garage or in the Central Avenue general parking lot.
