Novelist, constitutional law scholar to deliver Wayne Law's Rosen lecture

Garrett Epps, emeritus professor at the University of Baltimore and contributing writer at the Atlantic Online, will virtually deliver Wayne State University Law School’s Paul A. Rosen Constitutional Law Speaker Series lecture Friday, Sept. 11.

Epps will discuss “Gödel's Prophecy: How the Constitution Is Being Remade as an Authoritarian Instrument.”
The event will take place on Zoom from noon to 1:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required at to receive the Zoom details.

A novelist and expert in constitutional law, Epps retired from the University of Baltimore School of Law in June 2020.

He is The Atlantic Online’s Supreme Court correspondent and was a staff writer for several other publications, including The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Epps is the author of numerous books, including “To an Unknown God: Religious Freedom on Trial,” “Democracy Reborn: The Fourteenth Amendment and the Fight for Equal Rights in Post-Civil War America,” “Wrong and Dangerous: Ten Right-Wing Myths About the Constitution,” and “American Epic: Reading the U.S. Constitution.”

The Paul A. Rosen Constitutional Law Speaker Series was established in 2017 to commemorate Rosen’s passion for constitutional law. Rosen graduated from Wayne Law in 1964.
