AbstractOn January 7, 2009, a distinguished group of scholars met at the University of San Diego School of Law to discuss and debate the long-contested relationship between the Fourteenth Amendment and the Bill of Rights. The symposium, sponosored by both the law school and by the school's Center for the Study of Constitutional Originalism, was memorable not only because of the wealth of knowledge and intellect that were brought to bear on this old but seemingly timeless controversy. It was also marked by a civil, indeed generous, tenor that should be a model of the academic enterprise.
