madison handThere will be a panel discussion on the new book Madison’s Hand: Revising the Constitutional Convention by Boston College Law School Professor Mary Sarah Bilder on Oct. 27 at 5 p.m. in Barat House, Boston College Law School. Bilder writes primarily in the areas of constitutionalism and the history of the Constitution, early American legal culture and the legal profession, and the history of the book and legal education. In Madison’s Hand, Bilder reveals that James Madison’s Notes on the 1787 Constitutional Convention, long relied upon by legal scholars, were revised to a far greater extent than previously recognized. The other panelists will be Saikrishna Prakash (University of Virginia); Heather K. Gerken, (Yale Law School) and David A. Strauss (University of Chicago Law School). Sponsor: Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy. | A Wall Street Journal review (subscribers only) calls Madison’s Hand “superb.”
