Thrower Symposium to debate federalism
On Feb. 16, the 25th annual Thrower Symposium, titled “"Interactive Federalism: Filling in the Gaps,” will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. in the School of Law's Tull Auditorium.

The speakers will explore federalism and its interaction with substantive law in three main categories: the environment, education and religious faith. Kirsten Engle from the University of Arizona will discuss “"Environmental Federalism," specifically its impact on state and local efforts to address global warming; Michael Heise from Cornell will lead the panel on "No Child Left Behind: Coercive Conditional Spending Threats"; and Ira "Chip"” Lugu and Robert Tuttle, George Washington University, will head the panel on federalism and faith.

The event is free and open to the public, and six CLE credits can be earned for $30. For more information, call 404-727-1842.
