Upcoming event

Sandy Levinson

Anyone who happens to be in Washington, DC next Tuesday and has lunchtime free might be interested in the event below.  Although it's labeled a "book talk with Sanford Levinson," far more important will be the reactions and comments of the two terrific commentators, Steve Vladek, a specialist on, among other things, national security law, now at American University School of Law but soon, I am happy to say, to join the faculty at the University of Texas Law School; and Gene Healy, of the Cato Institute, who has written an excellent book the contemporary presidency.   There is no charge (of course), but registration is desired, as indicated below.

In An Argument Open to All: Reading The Federalist in the 21st Century, renowned legal scholar Sanford Levinson takes a novel approach to what is perhaps America’s most famous political tract. Levinson examines each essay of The Federalist, not for original intent of the Founders, but instead for the political wisdom it can offer us today. Levinson, in conversation with Steve Vladeck, a nationally recognized expert on the role of the federal courts in the war on terrorism, and Gene Healy, distinguished author and expert on executive power, the role of the presidency, and federalism, will explore the relevance of The Federalist to today’s politics.
Join the Brennan Center and ACS for an engaging discussion with one of America’s most distinguished constitutional scholars on his exciting new book on Tuesday, March 29 at 12 p.m.
