    This is part of an extended program on Thursday; please see the listing under the heading "extended programs" for details of all program sessions and speaker names.


    The program explains the state of constitutionalism as the United States enters a potentially new era.  Unlike the standard program on constitutional law, panelists are not being asked to discuss the state of doctrine or predict the course of the Roberts Court.  Instead, speakers are asked to consider broader questions.  How does the Congress and the Executive Branch understand the constitution and their constitutional responsibilities?  What are the constitutional obligations of a citizen in the year 2010.  How are political movements at this time contributing to a popular constitutionalism.  Where do American constitutional developments fit into constitutional developments going on in the rest of the world.
