Our kickoff event is tomorrow at 3pm Eastern! Listen to Professor Barnett and Josh Hammer debate about the future of originalism.

Our own Randy Barnett talks through Masterpiece Cakeshop in this great overview!

Some say the much-anticipated Masterpiece Cakeshop SCOTUS case is about religious freedom. But Professor Randy Barnett, who signed an amicus brief in favor of the baker, says the “compelled speech” argument should take the cake.
