The 56th Charles Evans Hughes Memorial Lecture - Stress-Testing American Democracy: An Initial Assessment of the Health of our Democratic Institutions in the Trump Era

Democracy is a fragile form of governance that depends on the strength of critical institutions and processes. It also depends on a shared culture of self-governance and pluralism. The presidency of Donald Trump has tested both the institutions and the culture of American democracy in unique ways, as the President and his supporters eschewed key aspects of the culture of democracy and challenged both long standing norms and formal processes. What did we learn about the state of our democracy in this period? What institutions and norms held up well and which proved more vulnerable? While it is too soon to form definitive conclusions, a tentative assessment is critical to shoring up our democracy in the future, as the challenges are far from over.

Be Prepared: The Impact of Climate Change and Lack of Preparedness on Weather-Related Litigation

When people consider weather-related litigation, they might think of slip and falls on snow and ice, motor vehicle accidents, or property damage. While these are all types of cases which forensic meteorologists investigate, climate change plays a role in many other types of cases – some you might not expect initially. Failure to prepare in advance for weather events, either as a result of misinformation or lack of knowledge about how to do so, is the cause of many weather-related lawsuits. Proper preparation in advance of both minor and major weather hazards, as well as arming yourself with the knowledge of expected climate changes, can protect lives and property and create a more resilient community in the face of a changing climate. Topics to be discussed include: --Weather and Climate: How are They Related and Why Does it Matter? --Climate Change: what is it and How is it Affecting the Legal Field? --Hazardous Weather Safety and Preparedness: Decreasing Vulnerability and Increasing Resiliency
