American Constitution Society President Russ Feingold will join University of Nebraska Law to discuss his book, “The Constitution in Jeopardy,” co-authored with Peter Prindiville. Feingold will explore a dangerous effort by factions of the Right to radically rewrite the U.S. Constitution through an Article V constitutional convention and examine the grave risks inherent in this effort. Feingold will also consider the role of constitutional amendment in modern life, examine the nature of constitutional change, and ask urgent questions about what American democracy is and should be.
