Issues in Interpreting the Constitution’ panel event with Stonehill faculty

Martin Institute Auditorium

Our society has agreed to be governed by a written Constitution as "the supreme law of the land" (Article VI).  Yet how this great document is to be "interpreted" has generated discussion from the outset, and especially in recent years.  The panel will consider various contemporary issues in interpreting the Constitution, including the debate between "originalism" and the idea of a "living" Constitution.
