Judicial Philosophies and the “Silent Prologue”: A Discussion with Professor Ofer Raban

Thursday, April 1 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

Originalism. Purposivism. Pragmatism. Natural law. Learn more about these and other judicial philosophies when we talk with Professor Raban about his exciting new book, “The Silent Prologue: How Judicial Philosophies Shape our Constitutional Rights.” In this book, Professor Raban explores the different methodologies of judicial decision-making, their justifications, and their impact on constitutional doctrine.  How judges think about questions of law and rights—what interpretive approaches they bring to bear on their work—has a large impact on our constitutional law and our individual lives.
