Symposium on Originalism and the Jury

This Tuesday I’ll be participating in a very cool symposium on Originalism and the Jury hosted by the Ohio State Law Journal. We’ll discuss the Sixth and Seventh Amendment jury trial rights, their original meanings, and to what extent courts should or are likely to match the modern jury trial right to what existed at the time of the framing.   The symposium is notable for the unusually diverse perspectives of the speakers: It features judges, professors, and practitioners in roughly equal numbers.   Justice Scalia will deliver the keynote address.
