The Indiana Law Review held its Symposium on “What If? Counterfactuals in Constitutional History” yesterday and it was a terrific event. Kudos to the panelists, the students, the moderators, and everyone else at my law school who put this together. When the papers are available (in draft form or otherwise), I’ll post links to them here.
Of course, I don’t hold a copyright (or a business method patent) on this idea. There’s no reason why there can’t be many more conferences organized around the “What If” theme.
