It may be Presidents Day (it’s not, actually — more on that later), but the faculty lounge is still open for business. In this months’ session, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are tackling the latest revelations from the Mueller investigation, what can be done about gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment, and whether restrictions on free speech have gone too far on college campuses.

Plus they’re weighing on the most overrated and underrated presidents (in pursuit of the elusive ‘Franklin Pierce fanboy’ demo), unnecessarily quoting Latin (guess who), and, yes, giving Professor Yoo, Philadelphia Eagles devotee, his moment in the sun.

It’s the first Law Talk of the new year and Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are starting off 2018 with verve. On this installment: who looks worse in the Mueller investigation, President Trump or the FBI? Is trading DACA for a border wall a grand bargain or a big mistake? Can California prosecute business owners for working with federal immigration authorities? Can blue states sue their way out of the new tax law? Will the Supreme Court overhaul internet taxation? Do federal judges really need clerks? And does the Americans with Disabilities Act protect “obnoxious chronic body odor”?

All that plus John Yoo, long-suffering Philadelphia Eagles fan, enjoys the sensation of human joy for the first time in his life. We can’t bring ourself to tell the guy what’s coming next.
