FedSoc Presents: Three Fault Lines in Contemporary Originalism with Professor John McGinnis

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • SLB Room 120

Professor John McGinnis, a celebrated constitutional law scholar, will discuss three fundamental fault lines within modern originalism. He will suggest that as originalism has become a dominant theory of constitutional interpretation it has had to offer a positive defense and definition of itself. This requirement has led to critical debates among originalists, including: (1) the permissible breath of constitutional construction; (2) whether the judiciary should be restrained or engaged; and (3) the weight that should be given to precedent.
