Cambridge Forum welcomes LAURENCE TRIBE, eminent Constitutional law scholar at Harvard Law School to discuss his new book (co-authored with Joshua Matz) Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court and the Constitution on the day the United States celebrates its 227th Constitution Day.
Is the Roberts Court really the “least dangerous” branch of our federal government, as Alexander Hamilton opined in Federalist Paper No. 78?
Tribe argues that this Supreme Court is shaking the foundation of the nation’s laws and reinterpreting the meaning of the Constitution.
