Federalist Society’s National Student Symposium

I’m pleased to be taking part in two ways in the Federalist Society’s national student symposium on “The First Principles of the Constitution,” taking place at Georgetown law school on March 9 and 10.

The symposium will begin on Friday, March 9, with a debate/discussion between Arizona supreme court justice Clint Bolick and me on “The Judicial Power: The Judicial Duty to Follow the Law or a Discretionary Power of Judicial Review?” Eleventh Circuit judge Kevin C.
