The Courts Under the Next President

November 17, 2016

The 2016 elections will impact the federal judiciary for years to come. With nearly 100 federal court vacancies - including one on the Supreme Court - the next President and the next Senate have the potential to reshape the federal judiciary. Professors Neil Siegel of Duke Law, Craig Green of Temple Law, Michael Gerhardt of UNC Law, and Georg Vanberg of the Duke Department of Political Science discuss the future of the courts under President Trump. Professor Maggie Lemos moderates. Co-sponsored by the American Constitution Society and the Program in Public Law.
