Five Amendments: Next Steps for Constitutional Change
March 27 @ 3:00 PM – 4:15 PM
Join the Center for Constitutional Design and the National Constitution Center for a discussion of the amendments to the Constitution proposed by the National Constitution Center’s Constitution Drafting Project. This pathbreaking initiative asked three teams of progressive, libertarian, and conservative scholars to convene online for a constitutional convention. After a week of dialogue, deliberation and compromise, the ideologically diverse delegates agreed on proposals for five constitutional amendments, ranging from term limits for Supreme Court justices to resurrecting the legislative veto and making it easier for national majorities to amend the Constitution. In a conversation moderated by NCC President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen, leaders of the three teams—Caroline Fredrickson, of the Georgetown Law School and senior fellow at the Brennan Center; Ilan Wurman, of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, and Ilya Shapiro, of the Manhattan Institute—are joined by Stefanie Lindquist, executive director of the Center for Constitutional Design at Arizona State University to discuss the amendments and the next steps for constitutional reform.
