Impact Litigation in the Trump Era

Monday, March 5, 2018 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Please join the Government Lawyers Forum and the Civil Rights/Civil Liberties Section for a panel discussion on impact litigation filed during the first year of the Trump Administration.  Topics will include the role of state Attorneys General in challenging actions of the federal government; the deference, if any, given to Executive Orders and agency pronouncements, and the basis on which they may be challenged; and the general impact on the field of administrative law that the Trump Administration leave behind.  We will discuss examples including the challenge to the so-called travel ban, efforts to withhold funding from so-called Sanctuary Cities, and other challenges to abrupt policy shifts.
