Supreme Court Term: Half-Time Report


Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Noon - 1:15 pm
Max L. Rowe Auditorium, Law Building


May the police draw blood from an unconscious motorist without a warrant? Does the First Amendment protect the right to register "FUCT" as a trademark? Can judges decide when electoral maps involve unconstitutional partisan gerrymandering? Does a war memorial in the shape of a cross violate the Establishment Clause? Must judges defer to agency interpretations of federal regulations? Are federal and state prosecutions for the same crime still consistent with the double jeopardy clause? Can a person who does not remember committing murder be executed? 


Dean Vikram Amar and Professors Andrew Leipold and Jason Mazzone will be the featured speakers. 


Free and open to the public.
