Amending the Constitution: Twin Jeopardies

Event description

  • Open to the public

Join the Center for Constitutional Design for our 1st Annual Constitution Day Address. Our inaugural Constitution Day speaker will be Russ Feingold, President of the American Constitution Society. He served as a United States Senator from Wisconsin from 1993 to 2011 and a Wisconsin State Senator from 1983 to 1993. From 2013 to 2015, he served as the United States Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region of Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

In his lecture: Amending the Constitution: Twin Jeopardies, Senator Feingold will discuss an initially fringe but growing effort to call the first-ever constitutional convention under the provisions of the U.S. Constitution. He will also discuss the need for a new process that would allow more frequent, democratic constitutional change. The lecture, therefore, offers a warning and a way forward concerning Article V of the Constitution.
