Professors Gary S. Lawson, JoAnn Koob, and Kate Shaw.

The fourth Scalia–Ginsburg Colloquy will feature a discussion of Trump v. United States, which will determine whether the former president enjoys presidential immunity from criminal prosecution for conduct alleged to involve official acts during his tenure in office.

The colloquy, which will be held online from 5:00-6:15 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 10, brings together two constitutional law scholars who will explore various aspects of the court's opinion. The event is free; to register, click on the link provided.

The distinguished speakers for this program are Kate Shaw, Professor of Law, University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, and Gary S. Lawson, Professor of Law, University of Florida Levin College of Law. JoAnn Koob, Assistant Professor of Law; Director, Liberty and Law Center; and Lola C. Reinsch Public Interest Fellow at Scalia Law, will moderate the discussion.

The inspiration for the Colloquy series grew out of the enduring friendship between the late U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Their legendary camaraderie survived despite their sharp differences on the bench.

Drawing from their example, Scalia Law established the series with the generous support of the Scalia and Ginsburg families. It serves as a platform for renowned scholars to engage in substantive, yet civil, discussions covering various facets of significant legal issues.

Previous Colloquies have addressed the Supreme Court’s affirmative action decision, the 303 Creative First Amendment case, and Trump v. Anderson.
