In 2017, 33 percent of Americans who were surveyed might not call any branch, according to the Annenberg Public Policy Center. People who want to improve their gratitude for America’s legal, executive and judicial branches are welcomed to participate in a Law Day program called “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.” The free program, provided by the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service and the Marathon County Bar Association, will start at 6 p.m. Thursday at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County Auditorium, 518 S.
Seventh Ave., according to a WIPPS press release. Local lawyers from the Marathon County Bar Association will provide brief spoofs to highlight the 3 branches of federal government and how the Constitution’s system of checks and balances maintains Americans’ civil liberties. 3 panelists– Former state Rep. Donna Seidel, Marathon County Administrator Brad Karger and Marathon County Circuit Judge Gregory Huber– will resolve how the 3 branches interact, how they work for the general public and how the general public can take part in federal government. There will be a question and response session with the panelists, and beverages will be served after the program.
