As we prepare to celebrate Constitution Day later this month, the founding document is as hotly debated as ever. Throughout history, different parts of the Constitution have taken on political significance at different times. Today, debates about the Constitution are intertwined with polarization and division among the public and within democratic institutions such as Congress and the courts.
In celebration of Constitution Day, Chicago-Kent College of Law is having a panel discussion, “The Constitution and Political Polarization” on Wednesday, September 18 from 3-4 p.m. in Room 590.
The panel will include Chicago-Kent faculty members:
Professor Christopher Schmidt, Co-Director of the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States
Associate Professor Carolyn Shapiro, Co-Director of the Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States
The event is free and open to the public. We hope you can join us for what promises to be a lively and interesting discussion.
