Scholar argues the Constitution is a “living document”
Constitutional law scholar Melvin Urofsky is in Missoula to deliver the Constitution Day lecture at the University of Montana.
The Virginia Commonwealth University professor has written a definitive biography of Justice Louis Brandeis, and is recognized as a leading scholar of the history of the U.S. Supreme Court.
In this feature interview, Urofsky talks with News Director Sally Mauk about why he disagrees with those justices who believe in a strict, originalist interpretation of the Constitution.
