The Honorable Jill Flaskamp Halbrooks
Minnesota Court of Appeals

Keynote Speaker

David Cole
National Legal Director, ACLU

"Constitutional Law and Civil Society: What Drives Constitutional Change?"

How does constitutional law change?  David Cole, ACLU’s National Legal Director, will discuss two of the most successful constitutional reform efforts in the last half century – marriage equality and the right to bear arms.  Cole will argue that constitutional law’s development is affected as much or more by civil society campaigns and initiatives outside the federal courts as by path-breaking legal arguments before the courts.  He will also discuss the implications of this argument for current efforts to defend liberty in today’s political climate.
