Abstract

This article was adapted from my speech entitled “A Constitution for Everyone.” Our Constitution is for everyone, but perhaps not in the way people assume. Our federal constitution protects everyone in the sense that all citizens may rely upon it in court, if necessary. But the Constitution is also for everyone in the sense that constitutional interpretation itself is a public and popular responsibility – and ought to be such.

Keywords: constitutional law
