Legal scholar and philosopher John Hasnas will present his recent scholarship on the Supreme Court's recognition of a fundamental right to die. Deciding when a compelling state interest in the preservation of life can override the right to die requires the Court to consider the value of life. Hasnas will argue that the logic of constitutional rights itself suggests how the law must define the meaning of "life." Sponsored by the American Constitution Society. Bagel lunch provided.
