The US Constitution has been amended, in accordance with Article V of the Constitution, only 27 times in our country’s history. The last one was ratified in 1992. But are there signs that the sleeping giant that is the amendment power is beginning to awaken? Join the Constitutional Law Center for a discussion of recent movements to amend the Constitution and some that are still on the horizon. Our guest will be Russ Feingold, former Senator of Wisconsin and now the Herman Phleger Visiting Professor of Law.
