The Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy's annual spring symposium will cover one of the most challenging topics currently affecting the legal community and, more broadly, society as a whole. The symposium will address a variety of questions concerning constitutional and public policy issues associated with state indebtedness and insolvency. For example, how will state insolvency affect the relationship between state and federal governments? What are some of the avenues states have used to stave off insolvency and what are the legal challenges that those avenues raise? Breakfast, lunch, and unlimited coffee will be provided! Sponsored by the Federalist Society; Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan LLP; the Duke Economics Center for Teaching (EcoTeach); and the Duke Political Science Department. Please RSVP at our conference website. This event will be webcast. For more information, contact Sara Wexler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
