Breakout #1: READING THE CONSTITUTION: WHY I CHOSE PRAGMATISM, NOT TEXTUALISM

By:

Given the enormous focus these days on the United States Supreme Court, you will not want to miss retired Supreme Court JUSTICE STEPHEN BREYER’s talk about his new book. It offers a clear and brilliant analysis of the difference between the textualist philosophy of the Court’s current supermajority and the pragmatism that is Breyer’s own guiding principle. In a wide-ranging conversation with JEFFREY ROSEN, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Constitution Center, Breyer will talk about some of the most important cases in the nation’s history, including the 2022 Dobbs and Bruen decisions that he believes were wrongly decided and have led to harmful results. 

July 21
1:00 pm — 2:00 pm
