The Founders to the Constitution never intended for it to be a fixed document. The Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy is hosting its Spring Symposium and has invited 5 constitutional scholars to propose drafts of amendments to the Constitution. Topics range from mandating an independent AG to an outright ban on the death penalty. Professors Sachs, Lemos, Coleman, Miller, and Young will comment on the proposed amendments' validity, routes to enactment, and potential pitfalls. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Duke Journal of Constitutional Law and Public Policy. For more information, please contact Kevin Zhao at email@example.com.
