On November 10, the Dole Institute of Politics will once again host “The Counselors,” an engaging series featuring two advocates arguing either side of an important national issue. In a cross between a courtroom trial and a debate, the two counselors will present their opposing arguments and call two expert witnesses each to help build their case.

Focusing on criminal justice reform, the debate topic for our November program is “Resolved: Felons should be allowed to vote after completing their sentence.”

The program will feature the return of Edward C. Duckers, partner at Stoel Rives LLP and head of the firm’s Litigation Practice, and Pedro L. Irigonegaray, attorney and partner at Irigonegaray, Turney, & Revenaugh.

The Counselors series is made possible through a grant from the Koch Family Foundation.
