"Originalism in Theory and Practice" Law Student Summer Seminar
In May of 2014, the Georgetown Center for the Constitution and the Fund for American Studies co-sponsored a week-long for-credit summer seminar for law students on “Constitutional Interpretation: Originalism in Action.” The course was taught by Georgetown professors Randy E. Barnett, Lawrence B. Solum, along with Visiting Lecturer Richard Izquierdo.
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 is open for credit to Georgetown students, visiting students from other schools, and students participating in the summer internship program of the Legal Studies Institute of the Fund for American Studies.
