George Mason Law Review Judicial Engagement Symposium
Thursday, March 22, 2012
8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Founders Hall
George Mason University School of Law

The Institute for Justice and the George Mason Law Review invite you to a spring symposium: Judicial Engagement and the Role of Judges in Enforcing the Constitution.

The courts were meant to play an integral role in keeping legislators and executive branch officials within the proper bounds of their authority, but judges today are often unwilling or feel unable to enforce constitutional limits on government power. We invite you to a symposium that seeks to move beyond the rhetoric of so-called judicial activism and simply ask whether judges are properly engaged in their role of interpreting and applying the Constitution.

Come hear from the nation's leading Constitutional Law scholars, including George Mason Law professors David Bernstein, Eric Claeys, Neomi Rao, and Nelson Lund. CLE credits are available.
