Center for Judicial Engagement’s Forum on the Georgia Constitution
Georgia State University College of Law
Join us on Friday, February 4, 2022 at Georgia State University College of Law, for an exciting exploration of judicial engagement and the Georgia Constitution! Judicial engagement is the idea that courts should demand the government provide real evidence and real arguments when examining whether it has violated the law. This is usually discussed with the U.S. Constitution in mind. But Georgia has a constitution too! And Georgia’s judges interpret the state’s constitution and apply it against state and local governments. What should judges do in those cases? And how should we think about the Georgia Constitution, given that it has been rewritten many times over so many years?
Join us to hear from a diverse and eminent group of constitutional lawyers and judges in a wide-ranging discussion on judicial engagement and the Georgia Constitution. This includes a keynote address by former Justice Keith Blackwell, as well as a free lunch. Please RSVP at the bottom of the page to reserve your spot today!
