Law Student Summer Seminar
In May of 2013, the Georgetown Center for the Constitution co-sponsored a week-long summer seminar for law students on “Originalism and the Federalist Papers” with the Fund for American Studies. The course was taught by Visiting Professor John Baker, and Georgetown professors Randy Barnett and Lawrence Solum.
The students visited the Supreme Court to meet with Justice Scalia and heard from a panel of distinguished constitutional litigators about bringing legal challenges to enforce the restrictions on governmental power established by the original meaning of the Constitution.
The seminar was open for credit to Georgetown students – over 40 of whom enrolled – visiting students from other schools, and students participating in the summer internship program of the Legal Studies Institute of the Fund for American Studies.
