On June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court issued its decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. The Court's ruling states that the so-called “individual mandate” is constitutional under Congress' taxing authority, but it prevented the federal government from withholding all Medicaid funds to states that fail to comply with the expansion of Medicaid. Pitt Law’s constitutional and health law experts will discuss the meaning and the long-term implications of the case, in celebration of Constitution Day.


This event is free and open to the public.  

Panelists include:

William M. Carter, Dean of the School of Law

Jules Lobel, Professor and Bessie McKee Wathour Endowed Chair

Alan Meisel, Professor of Law; Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote Professor of Bioethics; Director, Center for Bioethics and Health Law

The discussion will be moderated by Assistant Professor Jessie Allen.
