Judicial Engagement State Forum on the Minnesota Constitution
On February 20, 2020, the Center for Judicial Engagement hosted the first Judicial Engagement State Forum. This event brought together professors and practitioners to discuss what judicial engagement means in relation to the Minnesota Constitution.
The two panels discussed what the proper level of judicial deference should be under the Minnesota Constitution and which provisions on the Minnesota Constitution warrant more engagement from both litigators and the courts.
Justice Barry Anderson of the Minnesota Supreme Court gave the keynote address. Other participants included Mary Jane Morrison, Emerita Professor of Law at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Judge Jack S. Nordby (ret.), Mahesha Subbaraman, Subbaraman PLLC, Harry Niska, Howse & Thompson, Scott Flaherty, Taft Law, and Nathan R. Sellers, Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson.
