Alumni CLE Series
Start Date: 8/16/2019Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 8/16/2019End Time: 2:00 PM
Event Description:

“Contemporary Constitutional Challenges”   Beginning with the Presidential Election of 2016, the courts have been responsible for determining the constitutionality of actions by other parts of the government as never before.  Among talk of  “Fake News”, falsehoods, and partisan politics, it is hard for anyone to discern what and why courts decide on these initiatives.  This program is a  nonpartisan guide of what issues the Executive Branch, the states, and the courts support  and which arguments have been successful or not.  

You will also leave with a copy of the Constitution, and CLE credits if needed.  A reception will follow to meet our speaker and learn more about the ACS. 


Linda Hopkins, 1998 alum of Mitchell Hamline, is on the ACS Advisory Board.  She is their community activities director and also initiated the talks on Contemporary Constitutional Challenges. 
Ms. Hopkins, (Retired), founded and led the law firm Intelliware International for 20 years.  She authored a nationally published book on intellectual property and was an advisor to POTUS and the National Security Council during the Clinton Administration.  Ms. Hopkins advised the government of Bulgaria and the United Nations on internet law. Ms. Hopkins also  chaired a State of Minnesota working group on citizen data privacy, instituting new protections for citizen personal data..  She is cofounder of a women's leadership group, Team Women Minnesota, that is in its’ 5th year.
