A few days ago, Seattle University School of Law held a webinar on Trump v. United States, the recent Supreme Court decision on presidential immunity. The video is now available and I have included it in this post. I was one of the participants, along with many other legal scholars and commentators. The first panel featured Professor Holly Brewer of the University of Maryland Department of History; Smita Ghosh, an appellate attorney at the Constitutional Accountability Center; Professor Darren Hutchinson of Emory University School of Law; Professor Lee Kovarsky of the University of Texas, Austin School of Law; Professor Justin Levitt of Los Angeles’ Loyola Law School; and Professor Claire Wofford of the College of Charleston. The second panel featured Professor Jeremiah Chin of Seattle U Law and the University of Washington School of Law; Professor Rachel Lopez of Temple University Beasley School of Law; Professor Jed Shugerman of Boston University School of Law; Professor Robert Tsai of Boston University Law; Professor Steve Vladeck of Georgetown University Law Center; Andrew Wright of K&L Gates; and myself. My contribution happened to be the very last one on the second panel. It starts around 2:37:20.

I have analysed and criticised the Court’s ruling in more detail here.
