The Administrative Threat to Civil Liberties

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Furman Hall, Room 216
12:00 – 1:45 p.m. 

For the past several presidential administrations, Americans have seen the expanding powers of the administrative state threaten their constitutional freedoms in one area after another. Administrative overreach denies Americans the benefit of the Constitution’s structural protections, subverts procedural rights including the right to juries and due process, undermines substantive rights such as free speech, and may well jeopardizes our voting rights. Standing alone, any of these violations would be troublesome. Taken together, do they represent a crisis? Professors Philip Hamburger, Columbia Law, Richard Epstein, NYU Law, and Michael McConnell, Stanford Law, will discuss these challenges to civil liberties in the twenty-first century.
