[The New] Deal or No Deal: Structural Legal Change in the Post New Deal Era

As the Biden Administration’s policy goals begin to take shape in Washington and two of the three branches of government lean Democratic, expectations are high for structural change in our institutions. As the country saw in the New Deal, the Court can become a limiting factor on social and political change. With threats of court packing looming from the left, and the force of a more conservative judiciary on the right, the future of our country’s policy making hangs in the balance.

Join the Boston College Law ACS Student Chapter 1L representatives for an important discussion on what this means for our country’s future.
