“The Law of the Land”: Akhil Reed Amar in Conversation with Eric Liu

Please join Akhil Reed Amar, Sterling professor of law, Yale Law School in conversation with 

Eric Liu, executive director, Aspen Institute Citizenship & American Identity Program.

Renowned legal scholar Akhil Reed Amar will discuss his new book, “The Law of the Land: A Grand Tour of Our Constitutional Republic.”

From Kennebunkport to Kauai, from the Rio Grande to the Northern Rockies, ours is a vast republic. While we may be united under one Constitution, separate and distinct states remain, each with its own constitution and culture. “The Law of the Land” illuminates our nation’s history and politics, and shows how America’s various local parts fit together to form a grand federal framework.
