James Wilson and Constitutionalism

The Centre has an ongoing interest in the political and legal theory of James Wilson, the St Andrews graduate, American founder, and key drafter of the American constitution. On 30 March 2012, Director Anthony F Lang, Jr presented a talk St Andrews alumni in San Francisco on the importance of Wilson’s thought both in its context and today. In 2014, Dr Lang will be speaking at a conference on Wilson’s thought to be held at the University of Pennsylvania.
