The Tocqueville Forum presents “Who Won the Obamacare Case?” with Randy Barnett 

Thursday, March 14th 6 pm 

Georgetown University Campus

Lohrfink Auditorium


Professor Barnett was one of the attorneys representing the National Federation of Independent Business in its historic challenge to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. In this lecture, he explains exactly how the Supreme Court ruled in the case, why it is significant, and why so many law professors failed to appreciate the seriousness of the challenge.


Randy E. Barnett is the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University Law Center, as well as a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and the Goldwater Institute. He holds degrees from Northwestern University and Harvard Law and has been a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern and Harvard Law School. In 2008, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in Constitutional Studies.


Professor Barnett’s publications includes more than one hundred articles and reviews, as well as nine books, including Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty, Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, Contracts, Contracts: Cases and Doctrine, and The Structure of Liberty: Justice and the Rule of Law. He regularly publishes opinion pieces in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, and appears on such programs as the CBS Evening News, The NBC Nightly News, Parker-Spitzer (CNN), The Glenn Beck Show (FNC) and the Ricki Lake Show.
