MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge David Borowski will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Feb. 2, from 12:15 to

1:15 p.m. at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

First elected in 2003, Borowski has seen a lot during his years on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. After presiding over 100 homicide cases from 2011 to 2014, Borowski wrote that he had a “front row seat to the carnage being wrought in certain parts of the city of Milwaukee.” In his visit to the Law School, Borowski will discuss potential steps to reduce violent crime in Milwaukee and his views on efforts to reduce the prison population in Wisconsin.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” interviews of newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to the public and registration is available online.
