The annual Chapman Law Review Symposium, held every spring since 1999, is scheduled to return to the Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law on Friday, January 28, 2022, featuring a keynote address by Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of UC Berkeley School of Law.
This year’s symposium, titled “A Future-Proof Constitution: Exploring the Effects of Modernization on Constitutional Law,” will also include two roundtable panel discussions. The first, “Originalism in Flux,” will discuss which theories of constitutional interpretation render the Constitution most effective and resilient in the face of change, and will feature Fowler School of Law Professor Hugh Hewitt, Harvard Law School Professor Mark Tushnet, and University of Toledo College of Law Professor Rebecca Zietlow. The second, “The Tomorrow Doctrine,” will examine how emergent technologies and other trends will result in new constitutional thought, and will feature UCI Law Professor Aziza Ahmed, Pepperdine Caruso School of Law Professor David S. Han, and Drake University Law School Professor Mark Kende.
Admission to the Chapman Law Review Symposium is complimentary and open to all current Chapman University students, faculty and staff. Pre-registration is required.
