Now that Democrats have lost control of both the White House and Congress, will the left rediscover the virtues of federalism in their zeal to resist President Trump?
And now that Republicans have finally regained unified control, will they downplay federalism in their effort to advance a national agenda?
Joining We the People to discuss the fate of federalism in the Trump era are two leading experts in constitutional law.
Josh Blackman is an Associate Professor of Law at the South Texas College of Law in Houston who specializes in constitutional law, the Supreme Court, and the intersection of law and technology.
Peter Edelman is the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law and Public Policy at the Georgetown University Law Center, where he teaches constitutional law and poverty law and is faculty director of the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality.
This discussion was recorded at a special live event at Georgetown, hosted by the law school’s chapters of the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society.
