Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly


On November 15, 2016, UC Hastings College of the Law held an academic post-election panel to consider what the Donald Trump election means for America in the next four years. The panel was moderated by Scott Dodson, Associate Dean for Research and the Harry & Lillian Hastings Research Chair at UC Hastings. The panel included the following: Joan Williams, a distinguished professor of law and the founding director of the Center for WorkLife Law at UC Hastings; Bertrall Ross, a professor of law at UC Berkeley, where he teaches legislation, election law, and constitutional law; and Dahlia Lithwick, who writes about the courts and the law for Slate Magazine, hosts the podcast, Amicus, and is a contributing editor at Newsweek. Each panelist spoke on the challenges the Trump Administration faces including the economy, foreign relations, health care, immigration, the national debt, race relations, and a vacant seat on the United States Supreme Court.
