Panel Discussion about the Constitution in 2020 at the ACS Convention

Printer-friendly version

Here is the panel discussion at last week's American Constitution Society Convention on The Constitution in 2020, moderated by Reva Siegel and Jack Balkin, and featuring William Forbath (Texas), Rachel Moran (Berkeley/Irvine), Dean Larry Kramer (Stanford) and Vicki Jackson (Georgetown). It was an interesting discussion of progressive visions of the Constitution, with an emphasis on the themes of constitutional fidelity to text and principle, the role of social movements and the political branches in constitutional interpretation, and the need to redeem the Constitution in our own time.
