The 2013 Wayne Law Review Symposium, “A Wave of Change: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Michigan's Constitution and the Evolution of State Constitutionalism” will be hosted on Friday, October 11 from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
This year’s symposium is triggered by the 50th Anniversary of Michigan’s Constitution. Ratified in 1963, Michigan’s Constitution was part of a wave of change in state constitutions sparked by the famous “one person, one vote” standard formulated by the U.S. Supreme Court in Baker v. Carr. After 1963, nine states ratified new constitutions as part of this wave. This symposium seeks to evaluate the progress of state constitutions over the past 50 years. The symposium will also expose students, practitioners, academics, and the community to the unique and important qualities of state constitutions that are largely overlooked and undervalued.
Speakers will include national scholars on state constitutionalism as well as Michigan judges, practitioners, and community members.
Please join us in this celebration and discover the undervalued significance of state constitutionalism.
