with Anthony Johnstone
associate professor at the University of Montana School of Law.
Johnstone considers today’s legal and political controversies through the lens of the United States and Montana Constitutions. He draws on the text and history of those documents, as well as the principles and practices of We the People, that work together to shape constitutional meaning from the halls of the United States Supreme Court to the streets of Montana. Through lively and wide-ranging discussions, participants will explore sometimes surprising perspectives that take us beyond current divisions and into the shared civic vocabulary found in our federal and state constitutions.
