Bound By Oath by IJ

Institute for Justice

Bound by Oath is a new podcast series by IJ’s Center for Judicial Engagement where the Constitution’s past catches up with the present. Article VI of the U.S. Constitution requires every judge to be “bound by Oath” to uphold “this Constitution.” But to understand if judges are following that oath, it’s important to ask, “What is in ‘this Constitution’?” In this upcoming podcast series, Short Circuit takes a deep dive into specific parts of the Constitution, starting with the 14th Amendment, which turned 150 in 2018. “Bound by Oath” features interviews with historians, legal scholars, and the real people involved in historic and contemporary cases.
