Con Interp: Revisiting the Classroom Experience
Annual Princeton University Reunions Event
Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence; Director, James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, Princeton University
How did the framers of the Constitution seek to prevent tyranny and protect liberty? How should we adjudicate among competing approaches to their handiwork? Generations of Princeton students have wrestled with these questions under the tutelage of such legendary scholars as Edward S. Corwin, Alpheus T. Mason, and Walter F. Murphy. Constitutional Interpretation continues to be taught at Princeton and to attract students who want to be challenged to deepen their understanding of American Constitutional democracy. Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence; Director, James Madison Program, Princeton University, invites alumni to experience “Con Interp” as it is taught today.
