Approximately 1,000 scholars, students, practitioners, policy-makers and judges descended on the historic Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in our nation's capital this weekend for the 2009 ACS National Convention. Videos of panels and featured remarks are being collected here.
The Convention's theme, "Keeping Faith with the Constitution," shares its name with a new ACS book by Profs. Goodwin Liu, Pamela Karlan and Chris Schroeder. In a panel on the book, Liu and Karlan were joined by highly esteemed experts in constitutional interpretation for discussion of the "constitutional fidelity," which they put forth in the book.
Featured remarks by Elizabeth Warren included a robust defense of her proposal to create a Consumer Financial Protection Agency -- an idea recently embraced by the Obama administration.
