I'm excited to be speaking at AALS on my recent scholarship and work-in-progress, which involves the history, scope and purpose of the police power. This particular talk will look at how the police power has been invoked--and challenged--over the years in efforts to further public health. The panel, as a whole, has an amazing cast of characters, and I hope to see many of you in the audience then!
