    Statutes dominate the American legal landscape and statutory text has become the focal point for questions of statutory interpretation. But, despite widespread agreement that text matters, there is less agreement among scholars and judges about how statutory text helps determine statutory meaning. This panel will explore how textualist arguments and methods are developing in the 21st Century, including current trends and practices in the courts and theoretical justifications for, and objections to, textualist methods of statutory interpretation.

    Business meeting at program conclusion.
