The rise of the Tea Party movement and the outcome of the 2010 midterm elections suggest that many Americans are deeply concerned with expansionist government and desire to see a proper balance between federal and state power restored.  Conservative and libertarian policy makers in our nation's capital are now looking to find ways to limit the reach of the federal government, and the new Republican majority in Raleigh, led by Mecklenburg County's own Speaker Thom Tillis,  is working to reclaim those powers reserved to the States and to the people by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.

Professor Young, who teaches courses on Constitutional Law, Federal Courts, Foreign Relations Law, and Religious Liberty at Duke Law School, will address this "renaissance of federalism," as it is reflected in current controversies about healthcare, immigration, same-sex marriage, and state debt.  Professor Young has written extensively on federalism issues and participated as amicus curiae in many of the Supreme Court's leading federalism cases.  In 2005, he received the Federalist Society's Paul Bator Award.
