  • Navigating the FCC’s Digital Discrimination Rules

    28 MAG 2024 · At the Federal Communications Commission’s November 2023 meeting, the agency approved rules aimed at preventing and eliminating digital discrimination. These rules are a culmination of a controversial multi-year proceeding, kicked off by Section 60506 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss policies and issues underlying the FCC’s rules, challenges that companies may face in compliance with the rules, as well as the issues before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, where the FCC’s digital discrimination order is being challenged. Panelists will also discuss some of the potential future obligations that remain open in the FCC’s proceeding.

  • Panel IV: Constitutions, Elections, and Procedure – (How) Can We Change How We Separate Powers?

    20 MAG 2024 · Suppose we don’t like how our governmental powers are separated. Perhaps we think the executive branch has too much power. Or perhaps we think that it is doing more than the original meaning of “the executive power” would suggest, but we think that is a good thing. What are the legitimate methods of constitutional change in our republic? Must we amend the Constitution? How should an originalist approach these questions? Featuring: Prof. Sherif Girgis, Associate Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame Law School Prof. Lawrence Lessig, Roy L.

  • Panel III: The Judicial Power and Evaluating Judicial Supremacy

    20 MAG 2024 · New presidential administrations start with a flurry of administrative actions. These fresh rules, guidelines, and procedures in turn face judicial scrutiny from the moment they are finalized. Oversight from the judiciary can keep agencies accountable and within the bounds of the law. But when judges get the final say on everything the executive does, policies can take years—even decades—to implement and can fluctuate wildly with the ebbs and flows of litigation. Has something gone awry with the way judges are “saying what the law is”? Featuring: Prof. John C. Harrison, James Madison Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law Prof. Amanda L. Tyler, Shannon C. Turner Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law Prof. Jeannie Suk Gersen, John H. Watson, Jr. Professor of Law, Harvard Law School Prof. Gary S. Lawson, Associate Dean for Intellectual Life and Philip S. Beck Professor of Law, Boston University School of Law Moderator: Hon. Benjamin Beaton, Judge, United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky

  • Panel II: The Executive Power, the Legislative Power, and the Administrative State

    20 MAG 2024 · Many critics of modern administrative law want a world where Congress does more things, and the executive does less—which would lead to relative stability across administrations. Simultaneously, many also want their vote in presidential elections to have meaningful policy consequences. Between these two competing intuitions lies a tension at the heart of much contemporary political strife, which, of course, has a great deal to do with who controls Congress and who controls the White House. Featuring: Prof. Julian Davis Mortenson, James G. Phillipp Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School Eli Nachmany, Associate, Covington & Burling LLP Prof. Jed Handelsman Shugerman, Professor of Law and Joseph Lipsett Scholar, Boston University School of Law Prof. Christopher J. Walker, Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School Moderator: Hon. Jennifer Walker Elrod, Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit

  • Luncheon & Remarks

    18 MAR 2024 · Zionism: An Indigenous People’s Fight for its Ancient Homeland Judge Altman led us on a journey from 1208 BC (when the Merneptah Stele, the first extra-biblical mention of the People of Israel, was composed) to Israel's current war with Hamas. Along the way, Judge Altman showed that Jews are indigenous to the land of Israel, that Jews have lived in (and often ruled) the land of Israel for thousands of years, and that the State of Israel is a legitimate sovereign over the lands it now governs. Judge Altman also addressed--and refuted--claims that Israel is an apartheid state, that Gaza was in any way occupied by Israel on October 7, and that Jews have obstructed the establishment of a Palestinian state. Finally, Judge Altman explained that Israel's military response to the horrific terror attacks of October 7 was (and remains) proportional under international law. Featuring: Hon. Roy K. Altman, U.S District Court for the Southern District of Florida

  • Panel IV: Florida’s Tort and Insurance Reform: Past, Present, and Future

    18 MAR 2024 · Lawmakers and courts have been reforming Florida’s tort and insurance laws for decades. From expansion of insurance bad faith and contraction of comparative fault in the 1990’s, to restrictions on medical malpractice suits in the 2000’s, to changes in tort and insurance litigation in the 2020’s, the legal landscape shifted dramatically. This panel will examine the latest reforms in the context of recent history, and it will debate where Florida policy should go from here. Featuring: Kansas R.

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This podcast feed contains audio files of Federalist Society panel discussions, debates, addresses, and other events related to law and public policy. Additional audio and video can be found at
