Happy 200th Birthday McCulloch v. Maryland

 

Wednesday, March 6, 2019  
Noon-1:15 pm
Max L. Rowe Auditorium, Law Building

 

Read by every law student, McCulloch v. Maryland (1819) is among the Supreme Court's most important decisions ever. In ruling that Congress had an implied power to create a federal bank and that states cannot tax or otherwise interfere with federal entities, McCulloch set the stage for the rise of a powerful national government. On the 200th anniversary of McCulloch, hear faculty experts discuss the case and its ongoing significance for federal-state relations - as well as whether its principles can and should last another two centuries.
