Panel IV: Constitutions, Elections, and Procedure – (How) Can We Change How We Separate Powers?
FedSoc Events
by The Federalist Society
6d ago
Suppose we don’t like how our governmental powers are separated. Perhaps we think the executive branch has too much power. Or perhaps we think that it is doing more than the original meaning of “the executive power” would suggest, but we think that is a good thing. What are the legitimate methods of constitutional change in our republic? Must we amend the Constitution? How should an originalist approach these questions? Featuring: Prof. Sherif Girgis, Associate Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame Law School Prof. Lawrence Lessig, Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership, Harvard L ..read more

Panel III: The Judicial Power and Evaluating Judicial Supremacy
FedSoc Events
by The Federalist Society
6d ago
New presidential administrations start with a flurry of administrative actions. These fresh rules, guidelines, and procedures in turn face judicial scrutiny from the moment they are finalized. Oversight from the judiciary can keep agencies accountable and within the bounds of the law. But when judges get the final say on everything the executive does, policies can take years—even decades—to implement and can fluctuate wildly with the ebbs and flows of litigation. Has something gone awry with the way judges are “saying what the law is”? Featuring: Prof. John C. Harrison, James Madison Distingu ..read more

Panel II: The Executive Power, the Legislative Power, and the Administrative State
FedSoc Events
by The Federalist Society
6d ago
Many critics of modern administrative law want a world where Congress does more things, and the executive does less—which would lead to relative stability across administrations. Simultaneously, many also want their vote in presidential elections to have meaningful policy consequences. Between these two competing intuitions lies a tension at the heart of much contemporary political strife, which, of course, has a great deal to do with who controls Congress and who controls the White House. Featuring: Prof. Julian Davis Mortenson, James G. Phillipp Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law ..read more

Zionism: An Indigenous People’s Fight for its Ancient Homeland Judge Altman led us on a journey from 1208 BC (when the Merneptah Stele, the first extra-biblical mention of the People of Israel, was composed) to Israel's current war with Hamas. Along the way, Judge Altman showed that Jews are indigenous to the land of Israel, that Jews have lived in (and often ruled) the land of Israel for thousands of years, and that the State of Israel is a legitimate sovereign over the lands it now governs. Judge Altman also addressed--and refuted--claims that Israel is an apartheid state, that Gaza was in a ..read more
