The Constitution and Emergency
Should we expect the governmentto follow the same constitutonal principles during periods of crisis asperiods of calm?  Do we have a continuous constitution or one that mustbend to perceived emergency?  Which branch of government should define thetrigger and scope of that emergency?  How is our Constitution like andunlike those of other nations on these questions?  Has the government'sresponse to the events of 9/11 kept faith with or altered our Constitution?Sullivan's lecture will address these questions with special attention toour constitutional traditions of due process, equal protection, and privacyfrom government surveillance in the absence of individualized suspicion.
