Event at National Constitution Center on Thursday: The Next Supreme Court Confirmation Battle

May 23rd, 2016

On Thursday, May 26, at 6:30, I will be speaking at the National Constitution Center on the “confirmation battle,” which at the present moment looks more like a stalemate.

Former federal appeals judge Timothy Lewis of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP and law professors Josh Blackman of the South Texas College of Law, National Constitution Center Scholar-in-Residence Michael Gerhardt, and David Strauss of the University of Chicago Law School assess the Supreme Court confirmation process and the debate over President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the high court. Jeffrey Rosen, Center president and CEO, moderates.

I will use this opportunity to discuss a piece on the confirmation process and originalism, that I am working on with Randy Barnett.

I hope to see you there.
