Upcoming Events at Harvard, Northwestern, St. Edwards, IJ, UT Austin, and Lone Star College

October 14th, 2016

Next week will be a busy one.

On Monday, October 17 at noon, I will be speaking to the Harvard Federalist Society Chapter on whether the Senate has a constitutional duty to vote on Merrick Garland’s nomination. (Preview–it does not). Also, I will be popping in-and-out of the Forbes 30 under 30 Summit in Boston.


On Tuesday, October 18 at noon, I am speaking to the Northwestern Federalist Society Chapter on Unraveled, with a focus on the President’s illegal executive actions. Professor Jim Speta will kindly provide comments.


On Wednesday, October 19 at 11:00, I am debating Professor Steve Vladeck at St. Edwards University in Austin. We will be tussling over how the next President will use executive power domestically or abroad. (Preview–whether it is Clinton or Trump, the difference will be one of kind, rather than of degree). Tickets are free, and you can register here.


On Thursday morning at 10:45, I am moderating a panel at the Institute for Justice’s conference, “Economic Liberty: Lone Star Leadership.” The free event will be held at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin. Our topic will be “Economic Liberty and the U.S. Constitution After St. Joseph Abbey.” On our panel will be Jeff Rowes, Senior Attorney, Institute for Justice; Andy Oldham, Deputy General Counsel to Governor Greg Abbott; and Rob Henneke, General Counsel and Director of the Center for the American Future at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.


On Thursday at noon (after a short Fare rideno Uber, remember), Steve Vladeck will start Round 2 of our bout with a debate at his new school, U.T. Austin, about the effect of the election on the Supreme Court.


On Friday at 12:30, I will be talking about Unraveled at Lone Star College – Kingwood in Houston.


The following week I have talks in Birmingham on 10/26, Montgomery on 10/27, and Mobile on 10/28. Because many of you have asked, I am on sabbatical term–and am making it count.
