This program features William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Yale Law School Stephen Carter in conversation with Frederick I. and Grace Stokes Professor of Law at NYU School of Law Melissa Murray. Carter and Murray, two notable legal scholars, discuss the role of government power in uniting a nation or tearing it apart in times of crisis and explore the legal implications of the invocation of emergency powers during this particularly tempestuous moment in our nation’s history.
