      Constitutional Amendments Presented by Professor Richard Albert

      Constitutional Amendments: Making, Breaking, and Changing Constitutions Professor Richard Albert, William Stamps Farish Professor in Law and Professor of Government at the University of Texas at Austin Virtually all constitutions codify amendment rules. The Constitution of Canada has some of the most innovative amendment rules of all. What makes the Canadian amendment formula unique in the world? Why has amendment been so rare since Patriation? And what does the amendment process in Canada suggest about the most important values in this country? In this talk, Professor Albert will explain why no part of any constitution is more important than the rules we use to change it and he will describe how amendment rules open a window into the soul of a constitution, exposing its deepest vulnerabilities and its greatest strengths. This event is free and open to the public.
