Campus Conversation: Constitution Day featuring Dean of Berkeley Law Erwin Chemerinsky

In this special edition of Campus Conversations, Erwin Chemerinsky, the Dean of Berkeley Law, will take us on a deep dive into the Supreme Court. We will take a look at the impact of its current make-up, the major cases decided last year, and what’s in store for the year ahead. The discussion—part of the campus’s celebration of Constitution Day—will draw on Dean Chemerinsky’s expertise as one of the nation’s leading Constitutional experts who has, himself, argued cases before the Supreme Court.
