Can We Reconcile Progressive and Populist Constitutionalism? A Discussion with Prof. Louis Seidman

March 10 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

As Professor Louis Michael Seidman has recently noted: “Many modern liberals believe that the federal government is captured by a “billionaire party” determined to wield public power for private gain. But many of them also believe in giving the federal government greatly enhanced powers, like administering Medicare for all. There is a history to this contradiction.”

Join ACS and Professor Seidman of Georgetown University Law Center to discuss this history, modern liberalism’s amalgamation of progressive and populist roots, the tension between these two sources, and how to reconcile them, particularly in the context of constitutional law.

Lunch from Greek Corner will be served.
