Symposium

The Democracy Constitution

By The Editors

Tagged ConstitutionDemocracy Constitution

This special symposium is probably the most ambitious project this journal has ever undertaken: the writing of a new constitution for our country. The symposium includes several sections. We begin with a group of introductory essays by Editor Michael Tomasky, who describes the genesis of the project; by Sanford Levinson, the chairman of the proceedings, describing the deliberations and debates that unfolded; and five other legal scholars who served as “delegates” to our constitutional convention, who comment on different aspects of the process. That section is followed by deliberations, dissents, and of course the document itself. So come tip your hat to the new constitution.
