Everybody Has a Story: Gay Marriage and the Supreme Court with Professor Akhil Amar

Cody Pomeranz ’15 continues his “Everybody Has a Story” segment, featuring a new and fascinating campus figure every two weeks. Today, he sits down with Akhil Reed Amar, the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University, to discuss the two major gay marriage cases that were recently argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Professor Amar is an expert in constitutional law, having been cited by the Supreme Court in more than 20 cases. He is the author of multiple books on the U.S. constitution, including America’s Constitution: A Biography, and most recently, America’s Unwritten Constitution: The Precedents and Principles We Live By.
