James Wilson XIV

Continuing our longest-running flagship program, Hadley Arkes will bring together some stars of the federal bench, gifted professors in law and philosophy, and accomplished lawyers to take part in our 14th James Wilson Senior Seminar.  What seems to drive this seminar is the sense among its members that the classic teaching of Natural Law, so compellingly demonstrated by founders like Alexander Hamilton, John Marshall, and James Wilson, offers us a path to a more morally coherent jurisprudence. With our seminars, we are helping to make arguments from first principles ever clearer and more compelling.
