Symposium will look at constitutionality of Affordable Care Act

October 18, 2011

Indiana University Maurer School of Law will conduct a mini-symposium on the constitutionality of the federal health care legislation in honor of a former professor at the law school.

The Oct. 27 symposium will feature James F. Fitzpatrick, senior partner of the Washington, D.C., firm Arnold & Porter, and Indiana Solicitor General Thomas M. Fisher, who will take opposing views regarding the constitutionality of the act. Dean Lauren Robel and several professors will provide commentary and moderate a question-and-answer session with the audience.

The symposium honors Patrick L. Baude, Ralph F. Fuchs professor of law emeritus, who died in January. Baude was a constitutional law scholar who worked at the law school for more than 40 years.

The symposium is from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the moot court room, with a reception following the event. It’s free and open to the public.
