IN THE “THE MITCHELL CENTER PRESENTS: POLITICS ON THE EDGE” SERIES, the Mitchell Center joins forces with the Philomathean Society, an intellectual society at Penn in operation since 1813, to invite outside speakers to discuss contemporary political issues in a convivial yet serious atmosphere. We will invite leading figures from diverse fields—journalism, political advocacy, academia, and art—to share perspectives that are fresh and novel, whether because of the topics they address, the provocative nature of their arguments, or their simple excellence. As with all Mitchell Center programs, these events are open to the public.
REDACTED. BLACKED OUT. COVERED UP. The lead attorney of the fraud case against the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Jared Beck, comes to Penn's campus to tell the community stories of an ongoing struggle to garner public legitimacy and cause in what feels to be a stacked case.

Beck is an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, and a Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude graduate of Harvard College.
