Antonin Scalia’s Quest—and Bequest: Professors David F. Forte and Jonathan Adler

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour pending
Weight:

Cleveland-Marshall College of Law will host “Antonin Scalia’s Quest—and Bequest” Wednesday, April 20 at 5 p.m. The lecture will be delivered by Professor David F. Forte of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Professor Jonathan Adler of Case Western Reserve Law School. The event is sponsored by Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, the Cleveland-Marshall Federalist Society, and the Justinian Forum.

Synopsis

When most justices of the Supreme Court leave the bench, their absence is felt. It was true of Thurgood Marshall and Byron White, of Sandra Day O’Connor and William Rehnquist. But a few Supreme Court justices have cut such a unique path that their departure leaves not just an absence, but a void—a void nearly impossible to fill. Such was Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., even though he was succeeded by Benjamin Cardozo. Such was Chief Justice John Marshall, followed by Roger Brook Taney, and Joseph Story, followed by the now unknown Levi Woodbury.

Antonin Scalia was one those few justices whose impact changed the paradigm of how the Supreme Court sees itself in a constitutional republic. At bottom, Scalia saw judging as a moral quest—a quest not to find the right answer, but to find the way to the right answer. The question he asked of himself and his fellow justices—Quo Vadis?—where are you going?—remains before all who may someday don a black robe and sit in judgment of their fellow citizens.

Synopsis

Trade agreements are currently the central economic focus of this Administration. President Obama’s trade policy is embodied by two major initiatives, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The automobile industry is an integral part of the global economy representing roughly ten percent of world trade. This industry is in transition from market specific competition to global competition and this new business model has both an economic impact and technological impact on regulators around the world. Now may be the best time ever to achieve the objectives of globally harmonized technical regulations for the automobile industry.

Visiting Scholar: Richard A. Epstein - Leveling Down, or Leveling Up

CLE credit: 
1.0 free hour
Weight: 
0

Richard Epstein has been one of the most influential scholars in law and economics for over four decades. Known as one of the nation’s leading advocates of libertarian conservatism and classical liberal thinking, Epstein has published more than 15 books championing individual liberties and private property.

He will discuss his economic viewpoints during a lecture at Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law (1801 Euclid Ave.) Wednesday, March 9 at 5 p.m. in the school’s Moot Court Room. His visit is sponsored by the Cleveland-Marshal Fund.

Epstein is the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, the James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law Emeritus at the University of Chicago and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. His latest book, The Classical Liberal Constitution: The Uncertain Quest for Limited Government (Harvard U. Press, 2014), urges a return to the classical liberal theory of limited governance that animated the framers’ original text.

During the March 9 lecture, Epstein will provide insights on how to reverse the current downward economic spiral he believes is fueled by the fight against income inequality in modern progressive circles. According to Epstein, it is an illusion that higher taxes and stiffer regulations can raise the economically disadvantaged and the likely consequence of these efforts will continue the downward economic drift of the past decade.

The lecture is free and open to the public, and offers attendees one hour of free continuing legal education credit. Preregistration is not required.
