Michael Ramsey

James Stoner (LSU Political Science): Why You Can't Understand the Constitution without the Common Law.

With responses from Hadley Arkes, Peeling Back the Common Law: Reflections Stirred by James Stoner on the Common Law, and John McGinnis, Common Law Constitutionalism: Tradition v. Interpretive Process.

FURTHER NOTE: worth mentioning again, in this context, is this outstanding paper by Stephen Sachs (Duke Law School): Constitutional Backdrops.
