Two Upcoming Speaking Engagements

Over the next two weeks, I will be doing two out-of-town speaking engagements that may be of interest to some of our readers.

On Thursday, October, 3, 12:00-1:15 PM, I will be doing a talk on my new book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter, at Columbia Law School in Jerome Greene Hall, Room 105. Columbia law professor Philip Hamburger will comment.

On Thursday, October, 10, 3:30-5 PM, I will be participating in a panel on the Supreme Court’s recent same-sex marriage decisions at Chicago-Kent Law School, along with Chicago-Kent professors Carolyn Shapiro and Kathy Baker. My presentation will expand on my answer to a question that Justice Scalia famously posed in oral argument in the Proposition 8 case: When did laws banning same-sex marriage become unconstitutional?
