32nd Annual Dunwody Distinguished Lecture in Law: Obamacare
Held on March 22, 2013 at the University of Florida Levin College of Law Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center.
The Florida Law Review welcomed Professor Randy Barnett as the 32nd Annual Dunwody Distinguished Lecturer in Law. Barnett, the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University Law Center, discussed the recent United States Supreme Court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 22, in the Martin H. Levin Advocacy Center. The event was free and open to the public.
Barnett has written and commented extensively on the Affordable Care Act and represented the National Federal of Independent Businesses as their case against the ACA was presented before the Supreme Court last spring. Barnett discussed the general implications of the court’s landmark decision, as well as fundamental misunderstandings he perceives among the legal academic community regarding the decision’s import. Barnett’s lecture, “Who Won the Obamacare Case (and Why Did So Many Law Professors Miss the Boat)?,” preceded an article of the same name to be published in an upcoming edition of the Florida Law Review.
