Dr. Robert G. Natelson,
is one of America’s best-known constitutional scholars. He was formerly a
tenured law professor and the top publisher on the University of Montana law
faculty, where he taught, among other subjects, Constitutional Law,
Constitutional History, Advanced Constitutional Law, and First Amendment.
He is a Senior Fellow “Constitutional Jurisprudence” at Independence
Institute, Senior Fellow “Constitutional Jurisprudence” at Montana Policy
Institute, Senior Fellow at the Goldwater Institute and advisor to American
Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
The University of Montana
recognized his research achievements.
These included dozens of major publications; pioneering the use of source
material and discovering key facts about the Constitution previously
overlooked; creating the first online guide to “originalist” research (now
Documentary History of the
Ratification of the Montana Constitution;
and in conjunction with his eldest daughter Rebecca, editing the first
of the Emperor Justinian’s great Roman law collection (in Latin).
There are several keys to Rob’s success as a scholar. Unlike most
constitutional writers, he has academic training not merely in law or in
history, but in both, as well as in the Latin classics that were the mainstay
of Founding-Era education. He works hard to keep his historical investigations
objective. He also has the benefit of lessons and habits learned in the “real
world,” since he has practiced law in two states, run three businesses, and
worked as a journalist and at other jobs as well. He created and hosted
Montana’s first statewide commercial radio talk show; became the state’s
best known political activist
— leading, among other campaigns, the most successful petition-referendum
drive in Montana history; and he helped push through several important pieces
of state legislation.
In June 2000, Rob was the runner-up among five candidates in the party
primaries for Governor of Montana.
Recreation? He loves to spend time in the great outdoors, where he
particularly enjoys hiking and skiing with his wife and three daughters.
