Bond v. United States Debate

Time:  Monday, 11/4 at 12:30 pm
Location:  VH-218

The Federalist Society invites you to a Bond v. United States debate featuring 

Richard Pildes 
(Sudler Family Professor of Constitutional Law at NYU)

Nicholas Rosenkranz 
(Professor of Law and Georgetown University Law Center)

Bond is currently before the Supreme Court and presents the question:

Whether the Constitution's limits on federal authority impose any constraints on the scope of Congress’ authority to enact legislation to implement a treaty?  In other words, if Congress legislates to enforce a treaty, is Congress limited to the powers it otherwise has in Article I?

Learn more about the case here. See a preview of the debate on The Volokh Conspiracy here.

Lunch will be served. Please RSVP here.

Sponsored by the Federalist Society
