This all-day conference will showcase the interdisciplinary contributions of distinguished legal academics to the resolution of the present constitutional litigation over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The legal challenges focus primarily (although not exclusively) on the constitutionality of the minimum-coverage provision, popularly known as the "individual mandate." The general focus of the gathering will be on what legal academics, who are less constrained than other legal actors, are adding to the more traditional methods of legal argumentation that are being aired in the federal courts.
