Good Law | Bad Law #117 - Is Trump Killing American Democracy? w/ Aziz Huq

Is our democracy in danger?


Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Professor Aziz Huq, from the University of Chicago Law School, to talk about the state of our constitutional democracy.


How do we save a constitutional democracy once its core principles begin to erode? That’s the question at the center of today’s episode and the question Professor Aziz Huq and his Co-Author address in their new book, “How To Save A Constitutional Democracy.” Aaron and Aziz examine the state of our country’s institutions and the health of our democracy, particularly in these deeply divided times.


Under President Trump, Is our democracy being destroyed or is it experiencing a renewal?  There are arguments on both sides of course.  Once you listen to the episode, please share your own thoughts.  We always appreciate the feedback!
