Greve & Somin Speak at National Association of Attorneys General Meeting

On Tuesday, March 31, Professors Michael Greve and Ilya Somin spoke at the Midwestern Region Meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General. The topic of the meeting was “Federalism in the 21st Century.”

In a morning session on “Federalism in an Age of National Power,” Greve explored whether federalism in the 21st century accomplishes what the Framers intended. Joining Greve for the panel discussion was Abbe Gluck of Yale Law School, and moderating the discussion was Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.

Somin was featured in an afternoon session on “The Spending Clause.” Somin was joined by Sam Bagenstos of the University of Michigan School of Law and Gillian Metzger of Columbia Law School to discuss the issue of when Congress can impose conditions on federal grants. Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens moderated the discussion.
