Jonathan Adler

Jonathan Adler joined Erwin Chemerinsky for a discussion about the Supreme Court, past and present, at the University of California at Berkeley School of Law on April 23. Adler and Chemerinsky shared contrasting perspectives on the Court’s recent decisions, its approach to precedent and how the Roberts Court compares to prior courts. 

The program at Berkeley was moderated by California Supreme Court Justice Carol Corrigan and is part of a series of programs co-sponsored by the Berkeley Judicial Institute, Bolch Judicial Institute at Duke Law and the American Bar Association Litigation Section about the role of the Supreme Court and its impact on American life. The program was hosted at Berkeley and also broadcast as a live webinar. A video of the program is available. 

“Case Western Reserve University School of Law is extremely fortunate to have Jonathan Adler, who is one of the top Constitutional Law scholars in the country, as a long-time member of our faculty,” said Co-Dean Michael Scharf after watching the video of the program.  “His debate with the famed Erwin Chemerinsky was one for the ages.”
