Place: Alumni Memorial Union
1442 W. Wisconsin Ave.
The Marquette University Law School will host a two-day conference on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 5-6, featuring former governors of Wisconsin and leading national and state scholars to discuss the question: “Is the Wisconsin Constitution Obsolete?”
One of the nation’s oldest, Wisconsin’s constitution has been amended more than one hundred times. Wisconsin residents are invited to join in the public debate on whether or not the Wisconsin Constitution provides the structure for the political, economic, and educational excellence needed to compete in the 21st Century.
There will be a dinner Thursday night beginning at 6 p.m. in the Alumni Memorial Union followed by a Governor’s Round Table with former governors Patrick J. Lucey, Anthony S. Earl, and Scott McCallum. The cost is $50.00 per person.
The conference continues all day Friday beginning at 8:15 a.m. with keynote speaker Robert F. Williams of Rutgers University Center for State Constitutional Studies and several other national and state scholars. Friday’s registration fee is $100 per person. Pre-registration is required for both days. For more information and registration details, visit the Web site.
