Prof. Ilya Somin of the George Mason University School of Law will discuss challenges to the recently enacted health care legislation, including the amicus brief he wrote in Virginia v. Sebelius, a suit challenging the individual mandate in Virginia. Prof. Somin submitted the brief on behalf of the Washington Legal Foundation and many prominent constitutional scholars, in an effort to have the individual mandate declared unconstitutional and to dispel the myth of an expert consensus that the health care legislation is constitutional. A blogger on the popular Volokh Conspiracy, Professor Somin is an expert in Constitutional Law, Federalism, Property Rights in addition to many other areas. For more information, please contact Corey Sheahan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
