With a background in business and law, Jeremy Christiansen understands how constitutional law affects business and how various methods of constitutional interpretation in turn affect constitutional law. On Thursday, October 15, law clerk and SUU alumnus Jeremy Christiansen will be presenting in the State Bank of Southern Utah Business Executive Speaker Series on “Constitutional Interpretation: Why you should care about it, and why you should be an originalist”. He will present in the Ballroom of the Sharwan Smith Student Center at 11:30 a.m.
