CONFERENCE ON CONGRESS & COURT
On Feb. 1 and 2, the Law School will be hosting a major conference on Congress and the Supreme Court. With an exceptional roster of participants, including prominent practitioners and academics, many of whom have held important political posts, this conference promises to be an exciting and timely exploration of our most important legal institutions.
The conference, Congressional Power in the Shadow of the Rehnquist Court: Strategies for the Future, will examine the implications of the Supreme Court's history, in the last decade, of striking down, by the narrowest of margins, congressional enactments in the name of federalism, judicial supremacy, and constitutional limits on legislative power. Among these enactments are protections from age and disability discrimination for state employees, a civil remedy for victims of sexual assault, and criminal penalties for gun possession near schools. Conference participants will be looking at the impact of the court's decisions on principles of federalism and separation of powers, as well as on civil rights, civil liberties, the environment, and other affected interests.
The conference will begin on Friday, Feb. 1, at 1:00 p.m. in the Moot Court Room. Friday's session will end at 5:45 p.m., and there will be a reception to follow. On Saturday, Feb. 2, the conference will be held in the Moot Court Room from 8:30 a.m. until noon. For a complete list of the participants, please visit the conference Web site at http://www.law.indiana.edu/pubs/front/20011127_courtconf.html.
