We are excited to announce the second installment of Lectio et Colloquium: A CMC Book Club. Please join us as we gather with Professor George Thomas—Burnet C. Wohlford Professor of American Political Institutions—to discuss and learn about his latest book.

How should lawmakers and judges interpret the Constitution? Should they adopt a "textualist" approach, which is popular with the recent appointment of Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Barrett, or should they take a more fluid "constructionist" approach? Regardless of your opinion, it's hard to deny that "unwritten" ideas have a profound impact on our understanding of the Constitution. What is the role, then, of unwritten ideas in making sense of the written law? Join the CMC community as we learn, research, and discuss this topic.

All those who register will have the book sent to the address of their choice. The cost of this event is $25, with $5 going to support the Salvatori Center for Individual Freedom. You can expect the book to arrive at your address approximately one week after registration. To allow ample time to read the book, we encourage you to register as soon as possible. Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity!
