The Sweep and Force of Section Three

Warren Hall, Third Floor, Grace Courtroom, San Diego, California

Professor Michael Stokes Paulsen will present his widely publicized law article "The Sweep and Force of Section Three: The Constitution's Disqualification from Office of Oath-Breaking Insurrectionists," published in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review.

Professor Paulsen co-wrote the article with Professor William Baude of the University of Chicago School of Law.

The paper is especially important as our nation seeks to discern the meaning of a long-dormant constitutional provision enacted around the time of the Civil War and its application to the events of January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC.
