What is the original meaning of the Due-Course Clause of the Texas Constitution? Written well over a hundred years ago, state courts are now faced with answering that question, and deciphering what rights are considered substantive and worthy of protection under state law.

Please join TPPF and TROLP for a panel discussion on what historical sources say about substantive rights, panelists’ experiences with due-course jurisprudence, and current cases in front of the state Supreme Court.

Complimentary light appetizers and drinks will be provided for in-person attendees. You are also welcome to RSVP for a virtual ticket and tune in online via livestream.
