Introduction to Balkinization Symposium on Lawrence Lessig, Fidelity and Constraint


This week and next at Balkinization we are hosting a symposium on Lawrence Lessig's new book, Fidelity and Constraint: How the Supreme Court Has Read the American Constitution (Oxford University Press, 2019). The book extends Lessig's theory of constitutional fidelity as translation to argue that the Supreme Court has, over its history, balanced the obligation of fidelity to meaning with the obligation of fidelity to the judicial role.

We have assembled a terrific group of commentators, including Pamela Brandwein (Michigan), Ryan Doerfler (Chicago), Mark Graber (Maryland), Sandy Levinson (Texas), Gerard Magliocca (Indiana), John Mikhail (Georgetown), and Larry Solum (Georgetown)

At the conclusion, Larry Lessig will respond to the commentators.
