Living Consitution? Originalism? Just forget it’s a Constitution! Tom W. Bell

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

Tom W. Bell, Cato adjunct scholar and contributor to the Foundation for Economic Education, will be speaking on contractarian approaches to constitutional interpretation. Contractarian interpretation advocates for construing and applying constitutions as nearly as possible to standard form adhesion contracts, striving to embody the document’s plain, present, public meaning. Lunch will be served.
