Join Dr. Larry Sabato from UVA’s Center for Politics who will discuss creating laws that marry Constitutional doctrines with today’s politics.

Two-time Emmy award winner, political scientist, and professor Larry Sabato will discuss how the three branches of government mesh to create rules of law that reconcile 21st century social and political issues to the governing doctrines outlined in the 18th century.

He will also address ways in which our local, state, and national legislatures craft legislation that honors the Constitution while sometimes offering different legal interpretations of the Constitution based on different judicial interpretations.
