The Constitution of the United States contains our most cherished and widely held beliefs about rights, yet admits to varied readings and meanings far beyond its written words. A panel of some of today's greatest legal minds, both jurists and scholars, convened to discuss the Constitution serves as a foundational document for the rule of law in the United States.

Panelists Frank Easterbrook, Geoffrey Stone, Laurence Tribe, and Diane Wood range in views from left to right, suffusing this roundtable with the full breadth of contemporary judicial thought. They illuminated such topics as the unwritten Constitution, presidential politics, and the life tenure of Supreme Court Justices, providing a dynamic discussion on the decisions that affect the entire country.
