The Constitution & COVID-19

Opportunity Overview

June 25, 2020; 12:00 pm-1:00 pm

This is a virtual event.

Per Cornell Law School, “Join Professor Dorf for a wide-ranging discussion of constitutional issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental responses. Questions to be considered include: What power does the federal government have to supplement or override state government policies regarding the scope and timing of business closing and opening orders? To what extent can the President exercise those powers without Congressional authorization? Do orders forbidding gatherings unconstitutionally infringe the right to freedom of movement, free speech and assembly, and/or freedom of religion? How much deference should courts give to government officials in answering the foregoing and related questions. There will be an opportunity for Q&A.
Attendees will receive 1 NY CLE credit in the area of TBA. This program is appropriate for both transitional and non-transitional attorneys. (CLE Credit Pending)”
