Instructional Video Catalog:   Title Description

Each of the 13 programs in this challenging series is designed as a seminar with a moderator guiding the lively, often passionate exchanges between internationally-known participants from the field of law, journalism, education, and politics. Each episode tests the strength and relevance of America's Constitution, with participants arguing both the legality and the humanity of controversial issues such as the rights of the unborn and the terminally ill, freedom of the press, affirmative action and the insanity defense. The seminar format combined with the spontaneous, reasoned and emotional debate invites students into energetic participation. As students wrestle with the various interpretations of the law, they will not only learn the basics of the Constitution, but they will also see how the articles of our government continue to exert a crucial influence on day-to-day life.
