Join Duke Law School Professors Kate Bartlett, Guy Charles, Larry Helfer, Jed Purdy, and Neil Siegel for a discussion of the implications of the 2012 national elections and state referenda for American constitutional law and culture, both inside and outside the courts. Topics may include the possible effects of the Presidential and Senate elections on the future composition and decision making of the U.S. Supreme Court, the defeat of some very outspoken anti-abortion congressional candidates, the significance of the number of women elected to Congress, and the pertinence of the referenda and initiative results in four states to debates about recognition of same-sex marriage. For more information, contact Dana Norvell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
