The early months of the current Presidential administration have seen a substantial amount of litigation raising constitutional claims brought against the executive orders released at the beginning of the term. The number of issues raised, lawsuits filed, and decisions raised on both procedural and substantive grounds has resulted in a significant amount of confusion among the public regarding exactly what, constitutionally speaking, is going on.

This course, presented by Matthew Blaisdell, will review the President's executive orders and will investigate claims raised under the First, Fifth, and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. We'll discuss causes of action related to Due Process, Equal Protection, the Establishment Clause, the Free Exercise Clause, the Suspension Clause, the Spending Clause, the plenary power doctrine, separation of powers, state sovereignty, and other issues related to ongoing and anticipated litigation.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Review the executive orders currently being litigated
  2. Identify and distinguish the different lawsuits brought against these orders and different claims brought in each
  3. Understand the constitutional challenges to those orders within current litigation
  4. Anticipate further constitutional challenges and litigation related to the orders
