Legal Issues and the Pandemic

Larry Salzman, Steve Simpson

Presented at: Philosophy for Living on Earth

Date: Mar 28, 2020

Across the United States, millions have been told to "stay at home" or "shelter in place" to slow the pandemic. Such extraordinary measures raise a host of legal questions: What legal precedents if any are there for such measures? Do they represent the suspension of the Constitution? How do the lockdowns relate to the principle of the rule of law and the protection of individual rights? Should we expect to see any of the lockdown orders challenged in court?

Join us for another special episode of Philosophy for Living on Earth to get clarity on these and other questions. ARI's Elan Journo will interview legal experts Larry Salzman and Steve Simpson to get their perspective. An introductory article is available.
