The Constitution in Jeopardy feat. ACS President Russ Feingold and Peter Prindiville

Georgetown University Law Center, Washington, DC

A fringe plan to call the nation’s first ever convention under the Constitution's amendment mechanism has inched through statehouses over the past two decades. If realized, the plan would allow convention delegates nearly unlimited authority to draft alterations to anything from voting and free speech rights to regulatory and foreign policy powers. In their important new book, The Constitution in Jeopardy, ACS President Russ Feingold and legal scholar Peter Prindiville distill extensive legal and historical research and examine the grave risks inherent in this effort, while considering the role of constitutional amendment in modern life.

Join ACS, the Georgetown ACS Student Chapter, and the DC ACS Lawyer Chapter for this book talk on The Constitution in Jeopardy. A reception with light food and drinks will follow.


Russ Feingold, President, ACS

Peter Prindiville, Non-resident Fellow, Constitutional Law Center, Stanford Law School

Instructions for Visiting Georgetown University:

Georgetown University looks forward to your upcoming visit.

To help protect the health and safety of the Georgetown community, including our guests, all visitors ages 12 and older to University-owned or operated buildings must be up to date on COVID-19 vaccination (i.e., primary series and, when eligible, an additional dose), or attest to having a medical or religious exemption from being vaccinated.

Please follow the steps below that are required before your visit.

Step #1: Anytime between now and the day before your visit, please submit documentation showing you are up to date on COVID-19 vaccination with a vaccine authorized for emergency use or granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO). Acceptable proof of vaccination includes, but is not limited to:

o CDC COVID-19 Vaccine Card

o WHO Vaccine Booklet

o Documentation provided by a healthcare organization or country

Note: If you are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccination but attest to having an appropriate medical or religious reason for not being vaccinated, you will be able to indicate this as part of Step #1 and proceed with the process required to visit our campus. You will be required to submit to the University proof of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to your arrival time on our campus when you submit your health attestation on the day of the event.

Step #2: Assuming successful completion of Step 1, you will receive a short health attestation form via email on the morning of the event date. Please complete this form, attesting that you are symptom free before coming to campus. If you indicate any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, you will not be permitted to visit a Georgetown-owned or managed campus or building until you are symptom free.

Click Here to Complete Step #1:

Your event or meeting host will be able to monitor your progress on Step #1 above, and they may contact you if they see if you have not yet completed this step ahead of your scheduled time on campus. While event hosts are not provided information about your COVID-19 vaccination or your religious or medical exemption from vaccination, they are notified of the outcome of any COVID-19 test required by the University in connection with a claimed exemption and whether you have reported having COVID-19 symptoms or being in close contact with anyone who has tested positive.
