USD Law Constitutional Originalism Conference Lauded in New York Times
SAN DIEGO (February 7, 2011)—Today, former USD School of Law Visiting Professor Stanley Fish’s opinion of the school’s second Works-in-Progress conference was published in the New York Times. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Constitutional Originalism, the conference focused on a variety of new works concerning originalism, a brand of interpretation that demands fidelity to original meaning.
The conference was held in front of a spirited audience eager to debate the nuances of interpreting the U.S. Constitution. On topics ranging from the Fourteenth Amendment to the executive extent of habeus corpus, the cerebral discussion tackled a host of questions designed not to resolve disputes among the academics, but rather to find the best path toward getting to an answer.
