The Yale Club of Western Washington--Seattle

Yale professor and constitutional law scholar, Akhil R. Amar (’84 J.D.), will speak to members and guests of YaleSeattle on his recent book, America’s Unwritten Constitution: The Precedents and Principles We Live By.

In his book, Professor Amar describes how the solution to many constitutional puzzles lies, not solely within the written document, but also in the vast trove of values, precedents, and practices that complement and complete the text. He shows how the complementary relationship between the Constitution’s written and unwritten components is one of America’s greatest and most enduring strengths.

This event will be held in downtown Seattle at the law office of Perkins Coie, 1201 Third Avenue, 48th floor. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a reception and light refreshments, which will be followed by Professor Amar’s talk at 6:30 p.m.

The cost of the event is $25 per person. Space is limited, and advance payment is required. Please purchase tickets here:
