Bill of Rights Lecture Series: Session 3

On February 9, 2015

The Ashbrook Center’s Professor Gordon Lloyd gave a six-part lecture series to a group of teachers at the Reagan Library, in which he discussed several key perspectives on the development, writing, ratification, and implementation of the Bill of Rights. Episodes run from 50-60 minutes each. Session 3 focuses on the idea that the Constitution itself, as an instrument of both instituting and limited government, is a means of codifying and protecting rights – a Bill of Rights. Reference this page for a list of rights secured by the Constitution.
