Constitutional Originalism: A Debate
UGA Law's American Constitution Society and Federalist Society chapters are co-sponsoring a debate on the practical and theoretical merits of the "Originalist" theory of Constitutional interpretation. Defending Originalism will be Ilan Wurman, a professor at Arizona State, who recently wrote a well-received book on the subject. Criticizing Originalism will be Eric Segall, a member of ACS and a professor at Georgia State with expertise in Constitutional theory and interpretation.
