New Featured Discussion: The Supreme Court Considers the Constitutionality of PPACA's Individual Mandate

March 26, 2012 4:53 PM

James R. Copland

As the Supreme Court holds oral arguments to consider challenges to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on constitutional grounds, Point of Law is hosting a featured discussion that we hope will help shed light on the legal issues involved, as well as those that seem to be of particular interest to the justices. We're delighted to welcome the following legal scholars and analysts--among the leaders in their fields--to Point of Law:


Erwin Chemerinsky, University of California, Irvine School of Law

Richard Epstein, New York University Law School

Orin Kerr, George Washington Law School

Gillian Metzger, Columbia University Law School

Michael Rosman, General Counsel of the Center for Individual Rights

Nadine Strossen, New York Law School, formerly president of the American Civil Liberties Union


On Tuesday, March 27, after one day's oral argument, we'll be kicking off with comments from Professor Chemerinsky, Professor Strossen, and Mr. Rosman. Our discussion will continue over the next two weeks--come back and visit what promises to be an exceptional conversation.
