“Judicial Review of Public Health Laws: From Deference to Indifference” with Wendy E. Parmet

Building upon the book, Constitutional Contagion, COVID, the Courts and Public Health, this talk by Wendy E. Parmet will review the shift from deference to indifference during the pandemic and discuss its post-pandemic spillover, including in challenges to the authority of the FDA and EPA and childhood vaccine laws. The talk will also examine the connections between the decline of deference and threats to democracy and consider what this new judicial era may augur for public health.

The event will take place Tuesday, April 16, from noon to 1 p.m. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend in person in Room A59 of the School of Law, located at 11075 East Blvd. All others, and those seeking CLE credit, must register to attend via the online Zoom.
