Join Profession Robert Covington from Vanderbilt University for a special free presentation on the Constitution at the Williamson County Public Library on September 18 at 10 a.m. in the first floor meeting room.
The Philadelphia Convention that produced our Constitution concluded its work two hundred thirty years ago, September 17, 1787. Many of the arguments made by proponents and detractors of the document then remain with us today. This session will start with a brief review of events that led to that Convention and then move to a handful of Supreme Court decisions that have given more specific meaning to the often broad language of the document, and end with a brief discussion of how the Constitution is – or is not – enforced.
Robert Covington is Professor of Law, emeritus, at Vanderbilt University where he taught for 46 years specializing in labor and employment law. He has more recently taught and served as an officer in the programs of the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at Vanderbilt.
