Is Popular Right?: A Debate on Popular Constitutionalism and Judicial Review

The American Constitution Society hosts this debate at UCI Law between Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Stanford Law Dean Larry Kramer.

This is the second in a series of four debates held across the country, intended to identify common ground through exploration of the fault lines within the progressive community on important topics of the day. Deans Chemerinsky and Kramer will discuss whether courts are and should be the ultimate arbiters of constitutional meaning and what outcomes flow from the answer to that question.

Opening Remarks:
Caroline Fredrickson, President, American Constitution Society for Law and Policy

Rebecca Brown, Newton Professor of Constitutional Law, University of Southern California Gould School of Law
