Dr. Charles Franklin, director of the Marquette Law School Poll, talked about Wisconsin’s 2022 U.S. Senate race, including how he believes Sen. Ron Johnson is vulnerable in the election. “Senator Johnson’s favorability is a little bit more unfavorable than favorable now and that has come down over the last three years, sort of steadily,” Franklin said. “So that puts him in a vulnerable position.

Angela Schultz, assistant dean for public service for Marquette Law School, was featured for her “Lost in the Law” game that has been adapted from an in-person experience to online through Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Lab.
