The response to Covid at all levels of government has been the wholesale evisceration of our constitutional rights: mask mandates, lockdowns, retail shutdowns, and, most recently, a near universal house arrest. Good luck exercising your right to peaceable assembly in the age of Covid (unless you are rioting for racial justice).
What is the legal basis for this unprecedented government intrusion on freedom? What is the limit on "emergency powers" in a never-ending emergency? And how will the availability of a vaccine affect the debate?
Tune in live when Professor Richard A. Epstein, one of the foremost legal scholars in the US, will share his thoughts on these topics, exclusively with The Liberty Forum of Silicon Valley.
Professor Epstein is the inaugural Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law at NYU School of Law. He has served as the Peter and Kirstin Bedford Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution since 2000. Epstein is also the James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law Emeritus and a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago.
Professor Epstein has authored sixteen books including his newest, The Dubious Morality of the Modern Administrative State, published in March 2020. Modern administrative law has been the subject of intense debate. In this book, Epstein provides a critique of how the administrative state has gone astray since the New Deal.
He does a weekly podcast, the Libertarian with Troy Senik, a monthly podcast, Law Talk, with Troy Senik and John Yoo, and a regular podcast, Reasonable Disagreements with Adam White. He is also a frequent guest on the John Batchelor Show. Professor Epstein is also a contributor to Ricochet.com and the SCOTUS blog.

Who knew so many fired-up, loud-and-proud, liberty-loving, red-blooded patriots occupied Big Tech's Ground Zero? At a time in America when fear and hatred have hijacked so many public places and spaces, the Liberty Forum stands out as a bastion of free speech, association, and discussion. I won't forget the warmth, courage, and spirit of your remarkable club. Onward!
