About the Center for the Study of Constitutional Originalism

Originalism is the view that the Constitution should be interpreted in accordance with its original meaning—that is, the meaning it had at the time of its enactment. The Center for the Study of Constitutional Originalism at the University of San Diego School of Law studies all aspects of originalism by holding conferences, hosting speakers, sponsoring fellows, operating a blog, and promoting originalist scholarship.
