  • Robert A. Levy, Chairman, Cato Institute

How do liberals, conservatives, and libertarians look differently at the Constitution? And how do those contrasting perspectives affect current hot-button issues such as campaign finance reform, same sex marriage, and health care? We are pleased to have Cato Institute Chairman Robert A. Levy join us to share his libertarian perspective on the Constitution as a document that contains broad protections for individual rights against both federal and state power.

Dr. Levy is chairman of the Cato Institute's board of directors. He joined Cato as senior fellow in constitutional studies in 1997 after 25 years in business. He received his Ph.D. in business from American University and his J.D. from George Mason University School of Law. After law school, he clerked for Judge Royce C. Lamberth on the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and for Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Dr. Levy was also co-counsel to Dick Heller in District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court case that recognized an individual right to gun ownership under the Second Amendment. Please join us from 12:00 p.m. until 1:15 p.m. on March 29th for lunch and an informative discussion. Members and non-members are welcome.
