From the courtroom to campus, Civic Cocktail examines the role of the judicial branch of government and the future of higher education in Washington state. Host Joni Balter talks one-on-one with U.S. District Court Judge Robert Lasnik about the blockage of the Trump travel ban, the limits of presidential powers and the judicial role in the system of checks and balances in government. Then University of Washington President Ana Mari Cauce and Washington State University President Kirk Schulz share their views on funding for higher education, free speech on campus, the impact of Trump's immigration order and supporting undocumented "dreamers."
