Peter Rofes, professor of law, commented on the push for an Article V Convention by the American Legislative Exchange Council, which could end in amending the U.S. Constitution. “There's widespread disagreement about whether they have to say to Congress, 'Let's call a convention for precisely the same reason; for slightly different reasons,’” Rofes said. “So there's lot of play in the joints and much to challenge legally and constitutionally.”
Andrea Schneider, professor of law, and Natalie Fleury, adjunct professor of law, commented on the new rule that will allow lawyers who mediate family law cases to draft, complete and file settlement documents. “Divorcing couples may find the services of a lawyer-mediator to be a more palatable expense than hiring two attorneys,” Fleury and Schneider wrote.
Paul Secunda, professor of law, commented on President-elect Donald Trump’s pick of Andy Puzder as labor secretary. “It would be hard to pick someone who is more anti-labor than this guy for the Labor Department,” Secunda said.
