  • Does Congress Take the Constitution Seriously? A Constitution Day Conversation

    Wednesday, September 17, 2014 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3041 

    Do Members of Congress take the U.S. Constitution seriously?  Do they attempt to shape their actions to what the Constitution says?  Do they instead shape what the Constitution says so that it supports their actions (and condemns the actions of their opponents)?  Or do they largely disregard the Constitution?  Duke professors Chris Schroeder and Neil Siegel and UNC professor Michael Gerhardt will discuss these questions from both an historical and a contemporary perspective.  Sponsored by the Program in Public Law.  Lunch will be provided.  For more information please contact Sarah Holsapple at sarah.holsapple@law.duke.edu.
