Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

Featured Speakers:
Timothy Sandefur
Clark Neily


Is liberty or democracy the primary constitutional value? At a time when Americans are increasingly facing violations of their civil liberties, Timothy Sandefur's insightful new book explains why the Declaration of Independence, with its doctrines on the primacy of liberty, the natural rights of man, and the limits on legitimate government, should serve as the guidepost for understanding the Constitution. The Conscience of the Constitution: The Declaration of Independence and the Right to Liberty argues that modern legal doctrines, which value democracy over liberty, are endangering individual rights and corrupting our civic institutions. Mr. Sandefur will discuss his new book followed by commentary from Mr. Clark Neily of the Institute for Justice.


  • Timothy Sandefur, author, The Conscience of the Constitution: The Declaration of Independence and the Right to Liberty, and Principal Attorney, National Litigation Center, Pacific Legal Foundation
  • Commentary by: Clark Neily, Senior Attorney, Institute for Justice

Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
