The University of North Dakota Constitution Day celebration will be held September 20 at the School of Law. The program will be a discussion with author Eric Schlosser titled And Justice For All. The discussion will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Baker Courtroom. A social with Schlosser will precede the discussion beginning at 4:30 in the Law School Central Commons.
Eric Schlosser’s next book, The Great Imprisonment (2018), will describe how the United States came to have the largest prison system in the history of humankind—and how that system affects every one of us. During this candid, sit-down interview with Martin Gottschalk, Associate Professor and Chair of UND's Criminal Justice Department, Schlosser will discuss his current research, including how the three-fifths clause in the Constitution helped pave the way for the United State become home to almost twenty-five percent of the world's modern-day prison population.
