Prof. Howard Wasserman appeared on the National Constitution Center’s “We the People” podcast episode titled When Should Judges Issue Nationwide Injunctions?, debating the nature and validity of injunctions that protect beyond the plaintiffs in constitutional cases. The National Constitution Center is a non-partisan nonprofit organization, chartered by Congress to increase awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people.

Prof. Wasserman’s arguments build on his 2018 paper Nationwide Injunctions Are Really “Universal” Injunctions and They Are Never Appropriate: On the Scope of Injunctions in Constitutional Litigation (Lewis & Clark Law Review) and several forthcoming works.


Professor Wasserman joined FIU Law in 2003 and teaches civil procedure, evidence, federal courts, civil rights, and First Amendment; his scholarship focuses on the freedom of speech and on the role of procedure and jurisdiction in public-law and civil-rights litigation. He blogs at PrawfsBlawg and at Sports-Law Blog and is the Section Editor for the Courts Law Section of JOTWELL. Professor Wasserman is a loyal Chicago Cubs fan.
