Civil and Human Rights

The 14th Amendment at 150 Symposium

Ratified 150 years ago, the 14th Amendment has been called America’s “Second Founding.” The Bill of Rights provides crucial liberty protections against the federal government, but it is the 14th Amendment that provides federal protection against state and local governments taking freedoms away.

On September 21st, the Institute for Justice and the Liberty and Law Center at Antonin Scalia Law School will co-host a Symposium to bring together legal scholars, historians, and litigators to discuss and debate the 14th Amendment’s history, meaning, and future. Please join us!
