The Institute for Justice regularly records podcasts featuring interviews with IJ clients and attorneys. We discuss the principles we fight for, as we advance a rule of law under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society. IJ also publishes an email roundup of the week’s doings in the U.S. Courts of Appeal called Short CircuitSubscribe today.

Bound By Oath

Article VI of the U.S. Constitution requires every judge to be “bound by Oath” to uphold “this Constitution.” But to understand if judges are following that oath, it’s important to ask, “What is in ‘this Constitution’?” Your host John Ross takes a deep dive into the Constitution’s text, history, and characters, and interviews historians, legal scholars, and the real people involved in historic and contemporary cases.

Short Circuit

The Supreme Court decides a few dozen cases every year; federal appellate courts decide thousands. So if you love constitutional law, the circuit courts are where it’s at. Join us as we break down some of the week’s most intriguing appellate decisions with a unique brand of insight, wit, and passion for judicial engagement and the rule of law.
