Judges and constitutional law scholars are frequently described as falling into two camps: “originalists” who believe the Constitution should be interpreted according to its original public meaning, and “living constitutionalists” who believe the meaning of the Constitution ought to evolve over time. But are these two views really as different as they appear? And is there a way in which state constitutions might actually demonstrate the similarity? Join Steven Calabresi and James Lindgren, professors of law at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, for a fascinating discussion of state constitutions and their importance in the ongoing debate over constitutional interpretation.
