About the lecture

The most visible challenge was the storming of the Capitol by supporters of former President Trump to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power.  Additional challenges include the partisan stacking of the conservative Supreme Court and other courts—resulting in sweeping changes in the law—and political influences on government legal actions and accountability.  This lecture will provide an overview of the situation and draw out a few general lessons about the rule of law and its relationship with democracy that these events help reveal.


This lecture is open to the public and will be held in REC A3.15 (Moot Court) from 15.30-17.00h. This lecture will not hybrid. Please RSVP to this invitation as drinks and snacks will follow in the same room.
