Boston University School of Law
With this event – A Symposium on Jack Balkin’s Living Originalism and David Strauss’s The Living Constitution – we launch a Boston University School of Law series of symposia on significant recent books in law. The distinctive format is to pick two significant books that join issue on an important topic, to invite the author of each book to write an essay on the other book, and to invite several Boston University School of Law faculty to write an essay on one or both books.
What are the justifications for pairing Balkin’s Living Originalism1 and Strauss’s The Living Constitution2 in this series? I suggest three.
