Constitution and Citizenship Day Lecture

Judicial Review in the Age of Trump

Monday, September 18, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Library and Gallery, Albin O. Kuhn : 7th Floor

Mark Tushnet, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law, Harvard Law School

The lecture will discuss the role of norms and conventions-rather than judicially enforceable legal rules - in stabilizing the U.S. constitutional system. After identifying some of these norms and conventions, the lecture will describe how some aspects of the litigation over the "travel ban" show how pressure on norms and conventions can affect the way courts approach the adjudication of "ordinary" constitutional cases.
