Time for Another Constitutional Convention?

Time for Another Constitutional Convention?

Lawrence Lessig, activist, Harvard law professor, and author of Republic, Lost: The Corruption of Equality and the Steps to End It (Twelve, 2015), and Walter Olson, senior fellow at Cato Institute’s Center for Constitutional Studies, preview their debate over the wisdom of convening another Constitutional Convention. Could it bypass the gridlock in Congress?

On Wednesday at 6:45 PM, Intelligence Squared U.S. is hosting "Call a Convention to Amend the Constitution," at the Kaufman Center on 129 West 67th Street. If you're interested in the event, here is the link: http://www.intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/call-convention-amend-constitution.
