The Nature of Constitutional Rights: The Invention and Logic of Strict Judicial Scrutiny
William G. McGowan Theater
Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Constitution protects freedom of speech, equal protection of the laws, and various other rights without specifying the circumstances under which government may lawfully infringe them. In this theoretically sophisticated and engaging book, Professor Richard Fallon, Jr, explores how and why the strict scrutiny test emerged to fill that gap and, in the process, shaped American understandings of judicial review and constitutional rights themselves.
A book signing will follow the program.
