Erie v. Tompkins is a landmark Supreme Court case that wrought one of the largest sea changes in federal and state jurisprudence. Its waves are still felt today. Our panelists will discuss Erie’s lasting contribution to America’s great federal experiment. They will present on what came before Erie; the unique facts of the case and its often-overlooked New York ties; and the legal world that Erie created, including issues that persist today such as forum shopping and how state law is made in federal courts. Photographs and an original railroad spike will be on display, transporting you back to the years of the Erie Railroad.
