The Kavanaugh Hearing: A Battle of Two Constitutions

On Wednesday July 25th, the James Wilson Institute co-hosted a panel with the Claremont Institute and the Heritage Foundation on the hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Professor Hadley Arkes as moderator was joined by a distinguished set of legal scholars and Supreme Court experts, including John Eastman, Thomas Jipping, and Michael McGinley. The panel discussed the kinds of ideological challanges Kavanaugh will face from Senate's progressive wing and their "living Constitution" philosophy, as well as the best way forward in terms of strategy for the conservative legal movement as a whole.

The event was held at the Heritage Foundation at 12pm, where afterwards a lunch was provided. We invite you to watch the discussion below:
