Blackman & Baude & Paulsen at San Diego Originalism Works-in-Progress Conference

On Thursday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Trump v. Anderson, but there was little discussion of Section 3. However, at the Fifteenth Annual Originalism Works-in-Progress Conference in San Diego, there was a more in-depth discussion of the topic. This conference, hosted by the Center for the Study of Constitutional Originalism at the University of San Diego, features papers on various aspects of originalism. This year, Professors Mike Rappaport and Mike Ramsey presented on Section 3, with Will Baude and I also contributing. The panel was scheduled just 48 hours after the Supreme Court hearing, making for a timely and insightful discussion. The format included short presentations from each panelist, followed by a lengthy Q&A session. The questions and answers at this conference were much more sophisticated than those at the Supreme Court hearing. The recording will be released soon, but in the meantime, you can download my slides. I am grateful to Will and Mike for their thoughtful contributions and respectful debate. We may not always agree, but we can engage in productive discussions. As “some scholars,” we were joined by “some more scholars” at this conference, and I am grateful for the opportunity to participate.
