MILWAUKEE — Former Sen. Russ Feingold and Peter Prindiville are co-authors of “The Constitution in Peril: An Unprecedented Effort to Rewrite Our Basic Law and What We Can Do About It” and will be featured guests in an upcoming “On Questions,” Tuesday, August 30 at 12:15 p.m. at the Lubar Center in Eckstein Hall at Marquette University School of Law.

The conversation will be moderated by Mike Gousha, Senior Legal and Public Policy Advisor at Marquette Law School, and is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is mandatory and is available online. The seats are limited. Members of the media interested in participating should contact Kevin Conway, Associate Director of University Communications, at [email protected] Media seats are not guaranteed without an RSVP.

Feingold and Prindiville will make the national debut of their new book with a conversation about what they see as an initially marginal but growing effort to call the first-ever constitutional convention under the provisions of the US Constitution. They will also discuss their views on the need for more frequent democratic constitutional changes. “The Constitution in Danger” aims to offer both a warning and a way forward and is aimed at a wide audience of committed citizens.

Feingold is president of the American Constitution Society and a former three-term U.S. Senator from Wisconsin. He has been a visiting law professor at Marquette University, Stanford University and Yale University. Prindiville is a Washington, DC-based attorney and nonresident fellow at Stanford University’s Center for Constitutional Law.

This program will be available for online streaming on the event registration page.

Through public programs such as the Marquette Law School Poll, “Issues” conversations with reporters, public lectures by leading scholars, lectures on issues of public importance, and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, Marquette Law School seeks to advance civil discourse on law and public policy issues.
