Event (September 18): From the Bench: Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the Constitutional Statesmanship of Chief Justice William Rehnquist

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Over more than three decades in service to the Supreme Court, Chief Justice William Rehnquist stressed the importance of constitutional structure to preserving individual liberty. Always emphasizing the role of the courts in maintaining that structure, Chief Justice Rehnquist redirected American law in key areas — most notably, federalism, congressional power, criminal procedure, and religion. Through his opinions, articles, and books, he demonstrated how to be a modern constitutional statesman, deserving commemoration and celebration.

Please join AEI for the sixth annual Walter Berns Constitution Day Lecture, as Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the US Court of Appeals, DC Circuit, discusses the jurisprudence and legacy of the late Justice Rehnquist on the 230th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution.
