This upcoming fall, the Georgetown Center for the Constitution will offer a series of speaking engagements for faculty, staff, and students. Dates are TBD.
"Are You an Originalist?": Professors Lawrence B. Solum and Marty Lederman will kick off the semester with a reprisal of their discussion on originalism versus living constitutionalism. Both parties will present their arguments for why one interpretation method is superior to the other.
"Progressive Originalism": Georgetown Law's Dean Treanor and Professor John Mikhail will show that originalism is not just for the "right of center." The pair will also preview their Spring seminar on the framing and ratification of the Constitution.
"Originalism and Criminal Law": Professors Laura Donohue and John Stinneford will discuss the role that originalism plays in interpreting constitutional provisions related to criminal procedure. Professor Donohue is an expert in the Fourth Amendment and bulk data collection. Professor Stinneford has produced highly influential scholarship on the original meaning of the Eighth Amendment.
"Comparative Originalism": Professor Yvonne Tew will discuss the role of originalism in other countries, showing that originalism is anything but an American novelty.
