The Case Against the Supreme Court: Dean Erwin Chemerinsky At The Berkeley Forum
Start Date: 4/12/2017Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 4/12/2017End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Although UC Irvine School of Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky has always regarded the law as “the most powerful tool for social change,” in recent years he has become a notable critic of the Supreme Court. In light of current events such as Obergefell v. Hodges, the 2015 case that legalized same-sex marriage, and the unsuccessful nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland, the Supreme Court has come under the public eye more so than ever before. With his litany of court cases as justification, Chemerinsky’s critique of the institutions is predicated on his belief that the Court has consistently sided with the wealthy, the privileged, and the powerful, while failing to protect the minority. Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, one of the eminent constitutional law scholars of our generation, will draw upon his experiences to discuss the shortcomings of and possible reforms to the Supreme Court.
