For the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes, “The law is the public conscience.” Comprehensive and provocative, Intelligence Squared U.S. law debates tackle the issues at the forefront of the American consciousness. Including a series of constitutional debates produced in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the debates attract top legal scholars and policy experts, including Alan Dershowitz, Eric Posner, Nancy Gertner, Akhil Reed Amar, and Zephyr Teachout. You be the judge: hear the opposing sides and discover where your conscience lies.
