The Fourteenth Amendment at 150 @ Antonin Scalia Law School | Arlington | Virginia | United States

The Institute for Justice’s Center for Judicial Engagement and the Liberty & Law Center at Antonin Scalia Law School will host a symposium to reflect on the 150th anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment, ratified in July 1868. The symposium will be held Friday, September 21, 2018.

This sesquicentennial symposium will focus on how the Fourteenth Amendment recalibrated the relationship between the American people and state and local governments; and how that relationship continues to change as courts apply, misapply, or fail to apply key provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment. In particular, the symposium will address the Fourteenth Amendment’s legacy for individual rights and liberties.
