We'll Be Back Next Week: Now, Some Announcements and Links
Thanks to DoL readers while we (mostly) took the last three weeks off. We will be back providing new content roughly daily beginning on Monday of next week, with Prof Segall kicking things off with a powerful critique of the Supreme Court's opportunistic and inconsistent approach to valuing (its separately problematic view of) history as the sine qua non of constitutional interpretation. In the meantime, I'll take this opportunity to provide some links and updates:
(1) One week from today, on August 3, 2023, I'll be a panelist (on every panel, all day long) at the 25th Annual Supreme Court Review, sponsored by the Practicing Law Institute. I've been doing these panels every year for the last quarter century--since co-organizers Erwin Chemerinsky and Marty Schwartz inaugurated the program. Registration for the in-person session (in midtown Manhattan) or online isn't free, although tuition waivers are available for some categories of lawyers. It's a great way to earn a whole lot of CLE credit for those who need it.
(2) Last week, Prof (no longer Dean) Vik Amar and I talked about a few of the top cases from the SCOTUS Term in a roughly 75-minute session hosted by Justia (which publishes Verdict, for which both Prof Amar and I are regular columnists). If you missed it live, you can catch the recording of the webinar on YouTube.
(3) Planning for the symposium commemorating the life and scholarship of Prof Sherry Colb continues. Co-sponsored by the Cornell Law Review and Rutgers Law School, it will be held on Friday, September 29 at Rutgers Law School in Newark. We now have a symposium website, where you can find a link to register if you plan to attend. (It's free and open to the public.) Additional details (such as the schedule of panels and speakers) will be posted when they are finalized.
