We have ONE ticket remaining for In Conversation with the Rosenbach: Judge Jed S. Rakoff, which is the first of our new Federalist Papers miniseries. In this series, legal experts will focus on a single paper from this collection and guide a group conversation about what these ideas mean for American democracy in 2018. We'll put out a few related objects from our incredible collection of Founding Fathers documents. https://rosenbach.org/calendar/the-federalist-papers-mini-series/

    The Federalist Papers mini-series
    The Framers loved juries. They put the right to trial by jury into the Constitution because "they were unwilling to trust the government" to mark it out, Justice Antonin Scalia has written. Today, fully 95 percent of state criminal cases that end in conviction are resolved without a jury, by guilty pleas.
