The James Wilson Institute on Natural Rights and the American Founding

Board of Scholars

 

The JWI Board of Scholars is a collection of the most devoted regular attendees of our Senior Seminars.  These leading scholars offer informal advice for the topics to be discussed at future Senior Seminars. Additionally, these scholars identify intellectual "fellow travelers" who see the restoration of Natural Law as key to informing the work of lawyers, judges, and legal scholars.

All men are by nature equal and free. No one has a right to any authority over another without his consent
