2020 Jorde Symposium: The New Countermajoritarian Difficulty

2020 Jorde Symposium: The New Countermajoritarian Difficulty

November 12, 2020 | 4 PM PST 

Pamela Karlan (Stanford Law) will deliver a lecture on the “countermajoritarian” difficulty, reflecting on the Supreme Court’s reluctance to reinforce representation through judicial review at a time when the United States appears to be heading toward a period of anti-majoritarian control due to a combination of structural factors (including the Electoral College and the guarantee of equal suffrage in the Senate) and sociological ones (including geographic polarization due to sorting).

Nick Stephanopoulos (Harvard Law) and Franita Tolson (USC Gould School of Law) will serve as commentators.

This event is hosted in partnership with the Brennan Center for Justice and Berkeley Law. Information on past Jorde Symposia can be found on the Brennan Center’s website.
