Foundations of Liberty: The Rule of Law
June 12-15 ● Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia, PA area

On the one hand, we all want our individual liberties and freedom to lead fruitful, productive lives. But being a community of individuals, we also need a set of rules called laws to guarantee those freedoms. But how much is enough and at what point is too much? The Rule of Law Seminar provides an engaging forum for those getting their first taste in the ideas of liberty to explore this essential topic.

Our Foundations of Liberty: The Rule of Law seminar will provide an engaging introduction to the foundations of a free society by exploring the legal, economic, and philosophical roots of libertarian thought and how it is applied to insure rights as individuals. It is ideal for students seeking to understand how the central principle of classical liberalism—individual liberty—relates to the history of the law and our current legal institutions.

Lecturers include philosopher James Stacey Taylor, constitutional lawyer Clark Neily and economists Angela Dills and George Crowley
