Original Program Date:   March 15, 2017

If the lessons of the first weeks of the new administration are any indication, we are likely to expect more changes to come down the pike. What are the issues that are uniquely in the province of labor and employment law? How best to prepare for changes as they could affect your clients? Whether they are sweeping changes to immigration, LGBTQ protections, or the fate of the federal overtime regulations, the status quo will likely be a thing of the past. Also discussed are what changes to state and local laws might look like during the next four years, including the Washington Minimum Wage Act.

Original Program Date:   April 27, 2017

Presidential transitions raise important questions, including: How much power does a president have? What tools do presidents frequently rely upon in order to advance their agendas? And what role do Congress and the courts play in checking a president’s power?

This 90-minute recorded webinar will provide an overview of the scope, and limits, of presidential power in modern politics, drawing on recent examples from the Obama and Trump administrations.

Original Program Date:   May 24, 2017

This webinar reviews the history—starting with the Revolution—of the national government’s attempts to recruit the states to assist in carrying out federal programs and priorities. It then focuses on recent federal attempts to entice and coerce the states into helping the national government, attempts repeatedly blocked by “conservative” majorities on the U.S. Supreme Court. The most recent example is John Roberts’ lead opinion in NFIB v. Sebelius, which undercut President Obama’s use of the Spending Power and the Commerce Clause to enforce state participation under the Affordable Care Act. NFIB and similar court decisions will now constrain the Trump Administration as well.

Presenter: Hugh Spitzer – University of Washington School of Law, Seattle
