Roundtable on the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment

Details

April 12, 2012 12:45pm - 2:00pm

Room 190


The Stanford Constitutional Law Center presents a roundtable discussion on the original understanding of the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Conventional wisdom is that the Court's first major privileges or immunities decision, The Slaughterhouse Cases, was incorrectly decided and set constitutional law in the wrong direction.

This panel brings three preeminent constitutional scholars -- Kurt Lash (Illinois), Philip Hamburger (Columbia), and Michael McConnell (Stanford) -- to explore the original understanding of the clause, and the implications of that understanding for The Slaughterhouse Cases and contemporary doctrine.
