Congress & the Supreme Court

2.137, Austin, Texas

Professor Stephen Vladeck will speak on Congress' power of oversight over the Supreme Court. The program "Congress' Powers Over the Supreme Court and How It Can Use Those Powers to Hold the Court More Accountable," is to be presented by Prof. Vladeck, the Charles Alan Wright Chair in Federal Courts at the University of Texas School of Law on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in Room 2.137 at the UT School of Law. Lunch will be provided. Admission is free.

Prof. Vladeck will discuss the Legislative Branch’s powers over the Supreme Court under our constitution and how the Legislative Branch can use those powers to hold the Court more accountable. 

What are Congress’ powers over the Supreme Court? What are the limits of those powers? How are those powers to be enforced? What if there is a disagreement between Congress and the Court: who is to decide, and how is such a decision to be enforced? These are a few of the types of questions that Prof. Vladeck may address.
