About This Show
The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is a group of conservatives and libertarians interested in the current state of the legal order. It is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. This podcast feed contains audio files of Federalist Society panel discussions, debates, addresses, and other events related to law and public policy. Additional audio and video can be found at www.federalistsociety.org/multimedia.

Interpreting State Constitutions 3-31-2017
State courts are often faced with cases raising arguments under state and federal law. If there are similar provisions in both the United States Constitution and the Ohio Constitution, how should judges interpret these provisions? Must they be interpreted in the same way? If not, then what is needed to justify a court's decision to interpret text in the Ohio Constitution differently than similar (or even identical) text in the United States Constitution? -- This panel was held during the Inaugural Ohio Chapters Conference at the Athletic Club of Columbus on Friday, March 31, 2017. -- Featuring: Hon. Judith French, Ohio Supreme Court and Hon. Jeffrey S. Sutton, U.S. Court of Appeals, 6th Circuit. Moderator: Hon. Steve Yarbrough, Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals. Introduction: Matt Kemp, President, Toledo Lawyers Chapter.
