The Constitution and the Common Law

Another outstanding Forum on the Law and Liberty blog, this time on the Constitution and the common law.  The main essay is by Jim Stoner with comments by John McGinnis and Hadley Arkes.  Highly recommended.

Adam Pritchard and I took a crack at this issue about 15 years ago, very much in the spirit of John McGinnis’s essay here (John, in fact, published a comment on our article at that time).
