What Ever Happened to the Constitution?

In continuation of our celebration of Constitution Week, on Sept. 19th, we held a screening of a lecture by Andrew Napolitano, titled “What Ever Happened to the Constitution?” In this lecture, Judge Napolitano explores the historical experience of the colonists under English rule that influenced the limitations on government power present in the Constitution, the nature of the rights ensured in the Bill of Rights, and how these governing documents have been compromised and violated outright from the early days of our republic.

The lecture can also be viewed on YouTube and is embedded below.

Andrew Napolitano is a former New Jersey Superior Court Judge, the youngest at the time, and senior judicial analyst for Fox News. He has also worked as an adjunct professor of law and is perhaps best known for his television program Freedom Watch, which aired on Fox Business Channel. He is the author of six books on government and law with a particular focus on the Constitution.
