That is the question our speakers will address at the 27th Annual Clifford Symposium. While there truly is a basis for thanksgiving, the road ahead may be far from smooth. It was, after all, the loathsome future monarch, Richard III, who proclaimed in Shakespeare’s play the dawning of a “glorious summer.” Will our post-COVID time be as fraught? We certainly hope not, but we need to address matters, so that problems may be dealt with, tyrants thwarted, and the legal system harnessed to facilitate recovery.
To these ends we have assembled a remarkable group of scholars. They will examine the psychological and procedural effects of the methods COVID produced. They will consider our social safety nets, both through insurance and the application of tort law. Finally, they will take a close look at the role that has been and, in the future, may be played by government.
