One of the most difficult questions for constitutional interpretation is whether and how to fill in gaps in the text. Should courts, for example, recognize rights not textually enumerated in the Bill of Rights? Should we give force to principles of federalism or the separation of powers when the Constitution mentions neither phrase? One of the theories proposed as a background set of principles for constitutional interpretation is natural law. This workshop will invite scholars to present current scholarship that examines natural law theories, the modern debate over natural law, and whether such theories can prove useful in answering the difficult constitutional questions of today.
Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped.
