Join the Harvard Law ACS Student Chapter as we proudly host a panel of progressive experts in statutory interpretation on March 10th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET. This panel will consist of professors with backgrounds in linguistics, philosophy, administrative law, and positive political theory. At this event the panelists will debate ways in which laws should be interpreted, evaluate current popular modes of interpretation, and provide critiques and alternatives to ways in which the meaning of laws can be determined.
