Epi. 210: Think you know a lot about our Constitution?
September 15, 2017 National Center for State Courts

Host: Jesse Rutledge
 Guest: William & Mary Law Professor Allison Orr Larsen

 You may know that it was signed in Philadelphia in 1787, that the oldest signer was Benjamin Franklin and that it doesn’t include the word “democracy.” William & Mary Law Professor Allison Orr Larsen, an expert in constitutional law, can tell you a lot more about it. With Constitution Day (Sept. 17) upon us, Professor Larsen talks about the document’s strengths and weaknesses and its major misconceptions. And she discusses what she thinks will have to happen before it is amended again.
