Our Imperiled Democracy
Nationally renowned Constitutional law scholar and UC Berkeley Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky will explore the legal and political developments threatening democracy in the United States. It is a time when those on both the left and the right are unsure whether American democracy will survive. Dean Chemerinsky will explain why the Constitution was deeply flawed from the outset and why the choices made in drafting it are responsible for our current political crisis. Ultimately, only repairing or replacing the Constitution can save American democracy.
Speaker: Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean U.C. Berkeley School of Law
