Judge Ralph Erickson Presents Constitution Course for F/M Communiversity
Judge Ralph Erickson, Chief Judge for the United States District Court in North Dakota, will present "Mr. Madison We Have a Problem: We Love Your Constitution But Can't Agree on What it Means" on Sunday, February 24 as part of F/M Communiversity's winter season. This course was postponed from its original February 10 date because of bad weather.
Americans of all political persuasions agree they love the Constitution and are faithful to it. Yet, their interpretations are remarkably varied. Judge Erickson will discuss various theories of constitutional interpretation, the historic and philosophic underpinnings of those theories and the strengths and weaknesses of the various theories in dealing with real world problems.
Judge Erickson is a frequent lecturer on legal issues with a special emphasis on constitutional law, professionalism and evidence. He has an undergraduate background in history and political science.
The course will be held on campus, 1:30-3:30pm. Check-in is in Ivers Science Building lobby and pre-registration is encouraged. Course fee is $12; Concordia faculty and staff pay $6; students may attend at no charge. To register or for more information, call 218-299-3438, email email@example.com or go to www.fmcommuniversity.org.
