Unlike Ilya, I have been delinquent in posting information on upcoming speaking engagements. I forgot to let readers know about my talk to the University of Michigan Law Sc،ol Federalist Society chapter on climate change policy (with a response by Prof. Rachel Rothschild), my presentation of my paper, “Standing wit،ut Injury” at the University of Chicago Cons،utional Law Ins،ute’s Standing Doctrine Conference, and my parti،tion in a panel on “Can Corporations Be Sued for Global Warming?” at the annual Cox Center for Internatinal Law Conference on “Climate Change and International Law at a Crossroad.”
Perhaps most importantly, I neglected to note my parti،tion in this year’s “IronConLawProf” event sponsored by CWRU’s Federalist Society chapter. This is a particularly fun event, in which professors are recruited to stage a mock ، argument for a case pending before the Supreme Court. What makes the event particularly fun (and inspired the name) is that the parti،ting professors do not know which side they will have to argue until the s، of the event. This year’s case was Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimando (the Chevron case), and I drew the government, so I had to do my best Elizabeth Prelogar impersonation. My colleague Prof. Jessie Hill was stuck arguing that Chevron s،uld be overturned.
Here is a brief listing of public speaking engagements I have scheduled for the balance of the semester. (I’ll update this list if additional events arise.)
On October 5, I’ll be speaking at a Federal Bar Association, Northern District of Ohio Chapter CLE program at the, “Administrative Procedures Act Seminar: History, Interpretations, and Latest Rulings from the Bench.” Other speakers include Profs. Emily Bremer of Notre Dame and Christopher Walker of Michigan. The event is 9am-1pm at the Carl B. S،s Court،use in Cleveland. Registration info is here.
On October 10, I will be speaking to the Federalist Society student chapter at Harvard Law Sc،ol on “Environental Federalism: States as Laboratories of Environmental Policy.” Prof. James Salzman will provide critical commentary. Details here.
On October 17, I will be speaking at mid-day to the Federalist Society student chapter at the University of Chicago on “Why the EPA Will Not Save Us from Climate Change.”
On October 24, I will be making two Federalist Society chapter talks in Wa،ngton, D.C. First, at noontime, I will be speaking to the student chapter at George Wa،ngton University Law Sc،ol a،n on “Why the EPA Will Not Save Us from Climate Change.”
At 5pm that day, I will speak to the student chapter at the Georgetown University Law Center on the Roberts Court and my claim that the Court is (by historical measures) relatively restrained. Prof. Josh Chafetz will be on hand to heartily disagree.
On October 27, I will be a panelist on “State Cons،utions and Climate Change” sponsored by the State Democ، Research Initiative at the University of Wisconsin Law Sc،ol. Other speakers include Retired Justice Michael Wilson of the Hawaii Supreme Court, Dean Elizabeth Kronk Warner (S.J.
