The Reform of the U.S. Supreme Court

14.12.2020, 18:00 - 19:15 Uhr


Recent events, one of them being the quick replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, have given new momentum to the debate about the role of the U.S. Supreme Court. What is particularly remarkable about the current discussion, is that it shifted the discourse about the Supreme Court from the discussion of doctrinal alternatives to actual institutional alternatives. Accompanied by a critical review, Prof. Samuel Moyn (Yale) will guide the audience of his virtual lecture through the thicket of new proposals - and argue in favor of strategies of institutional disempowerment.

The online lecture is co-hosted by the Institute for Public Law (Dep. 2) at the University of Freiburg and DAJV. The lecture is part of the Lecture Series “Current Questions of Constitutional Law and International Law”, organized by Prof. Dr. Silja Vöneky.

The webinar is open to everyone by free admission and will be held in English. It will be followed by a discussion.
