- At 10 a.m., Prof. Mark Graber, of the University of Maryland’ Carey School of Law, will provide a CLE presentation on the Civil War Amendments (13th, 14th and 15th Amendments). Graber, author of the forthcoming book Punish Treason, Reward Loyalty: The Forgotten Goals of Constitutional Reform After the Civil War, will address topics including:
- What has been the impact of the due process clause and the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment on American governance and society?
- What was the point of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th provisions of the 14th Amendment? Why do we hear so little about them and what might be their impact of those provisions on the contemporary United States?
- What has been the impact of the doctrine of incorporation on American governance and society?
- At 11 a.m., Bill Martucci and John Barkett, two nationally known litigators with Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP, will review the key cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court in its current term.
- 12 p.m.: Lunch and Remarks
- At 1 p.m., Prof. Eric Berger of the University of Nebraska School of Law will address the trend in recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions toward less deference for administrative agencies’ rulemaking authority. Prof. Berger’s publications include a series of video lecture courses on Constitutional Law and award-winning scholarship on the relationship between administrative law and the Constitution. Topics to be addressed include:
- Whether courts should be active in the area of agency rulemaking and, if so, whether they should approach these issues first and foremost as a matter of Constitutional law or as one of statutory interpretation.
- How recent Roberts Courts decisions such as NFIB v. Department of Labor and West Virginia v. EPA have altered the legal doctrine in this area, and what long-term legal and political implications exist.
