Professor Muñoz’s Conversation with Judges Amy Barrett & Amul Thapar

Watch video here

In March 2019, Constitutional Studies Program director Phillip Muñoz and our undergraduate Tocqueville Fellows sat down for a conversation with Judges Amy Barrett and Amul Thapar.

Judges Barrett and Thapar discuss their judicial philosophies, the role of courts and the duty of judges in American democracy; and precedent, originalism and the rule of law. Judge Barrett explains why she is an originalist, why she pursued a career in law, what it was like working for Justice Scalia. Judge Thapar shares how 9/11 led him to career in public service. And in an especially poignant and intimate moment about a half hour in, Judge Barrett discusses her family, children, and the story of her and Jesse’s adoption of John Peter.
