There is good news for those of us who don't live in the Washington DC area and have an interest in Constitutional law. The Cato Institute has posted video and audio
from yesterday's Constitution Day 2006 event. The program looks incredibly interesting. Ilya Somin, Larry E. Ribstein, and Robert Pushaw were on a panel discussing federalism issues. Martin Flaherty and John Yoo went head to head on executive power. Allison Hayward, Dale Carpenter, and Robert Corn-Revere talked about the First Amendment and campaign finance laws. Erik Jaffe, Walter Dellinger, and Randy Barnett looked ahead to the Court's next term. Judge Danny Boggs gave the closing lecture of the day.
If my iPod wasn't dead, I would just download the podcasts and listen to them over the next day or two. Instead, I will probably watch the archived video. It will take a little long to find the time, but I'm sure it will be worth it.
I also hope to have some posts in the near future about Cato's Supreme Court Review
. Peter Rutledge has an excellent analysis of the Court's next term. It's available on SSRN
if you can't wait for me to post about it.
