Can They Do That? The U.S. Constitution in Today’s America

Three Tuesdays • 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. • Mackey Auditorium

October 1, 29 • December 3

The U.S. Constitution is the sometimes misunderstood “operating system” of the world’s longest enduring republic. It both guarantees the rights of Americans and limits the powers of national and state governments. Among the topics presented this semester are the legal consequences and historical context for the important amendments to the Constitution. Each class will include discussions of contemporary Constitutional issues such as sexual equality, reproductive rights and limitations on Presidential power. The course features a website with supplementary materials and class notes:
