Join Law of the Land, the Environmental Law Society, and the Federalist Society on Tuesday, April 16, to learn about the dispute over the Obama Presidential Center's Jackson Park location. This fall, Protect Our Parks filed a lawsuit arguing that the public trust doctrine prevents the city from permitting the construction of the presidential center on the lakefront. Professor Strahilevitz, who joined in writing an amicus brief opposing the suit, will debate Professor Epstein, who has filed an amicus brief in favor of the lawsuit. Roti will be served. Room I.
