Description

Sponsored by Samuel Moyn, Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence & Professor of History, Yale Law School
Organized by Take Back the Court
Co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society-Yale Chapter

With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace her, Americans have begun to debate the institutional limitations of the Supreme Court more seriously than in nearly a century. This two-part symposium brings together national academic experts to clarify the terms and stakes of the current debate. The first session, held on October 13, took up the constraints and possibilities of the current political context today, and the proper criteria for evaluating reform proposals. The second session on November 19 compares and contrasts some of the most-discussed options for reform, both personnel expansion and alternatives to it. Registration is required for both events.

Session 2, November 19 - Supreme Court Reform: A Menu of Options

Ganesh Sitaraman, Vanderbilt Law School
Christopher Jon Sprigman, NYU Law School
