Originalism. Purposivism. Pragmatism. Natural law. Learn more about these and other judicial philosophies as Professor Raban speaks about his exciting new book, “The Silent Prologue: How Judicial Philosophies Shape our Constitutional Rights.” In this book, Professor Raban explores the different methodologies of judicial decision-making, their justifications, and their impact on constitutional doctrine.  How judges think about questions of law and rights—what interpretive approaches they bring to bear on their work—has a large impact on our constitutional law and our individual lives.

Format: lecture followed by a Q&A
