President Trump's administration has helped renew interest in federalism among Democrats and liberals. Is there now more opportunity for cross-ideological support for this important structure of the Constitution?  Or do continuing divisions on the nature of federalism such as the debate between competitive and cooperative federalism make this an unpromising alliance?

On November 16, The Federalist Society host will host a panel by the Federalism and Separation of Powers Practice Group as a part of the 2017 National Lawyers Convention titled Is Everyone Now for Federalism? Composed of professors from across the country, the panel will discuss the prospects of bi-partisan commitment to federalism.

The discussion will feature the following panelists:

  • Prof. John Eastman, Henry Salvatori Professor of Law and Community Service and Director, Center for Jurisprudence, Dale E. Fowler School of Law, Chapman University
  • Dean Heather K. Gerken, Dean and Sol & Lillian Goldman Professor of Law, Yale Law School
  • Prof. Abbe R. Gluck, Professor of Law and Faculty Director, Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy, Yale Law School
  • Prof. John O. McGinnis, George C. Dix Professor in Constitutional Law, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law
  • Prof. Ilya Somin, Professor of Law, Antonin Scalia Law, School George Mason University
  • Moderator: Hon. William H. Pryor Jr., United States Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit

Join the panel on Thursday, November 16 from 11:45 – 1:30 PM in the State Room of The Mayflower Hotel to engage this topic as the National Lawyers Convention pursues its theme of Administrative Agencies and the Regulatory State.
