Constitution and Citizenship Day Lecture
Judicial Review in the Age of Trump
Mark Tushnet, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law, Harvard Law School
The lecture will discuss the role of norms and conventions-rather than judicially enforceable legal rules - in stabilizing the U.S. constitutional system. After identifying some of these norms and conventions, the lecture will describe how some aspects of the litigation over the "travel ban" show how pressure on norms and conventions can affect the way courts approach the adjudication of "ordinary" constitutional cases.
