Question of the Week

If You Had a Chance to Rewrite the US Constitution, What Would You Change?

In the wake of political unrest after its financial collapse in 2008, Iceland is drafting a new constitution. The nation of 300,000 people is reaching out to its citizens for input by way of a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a YouTube channel. The drafting project started in April and will end next month, when the new constitution will be put to referendum, JURIST - Paper Chase reported.

So this week, we’d like to ask: If you had a chance to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, what would you change? Or would you not change a thing? Answer in the comments.

Featured answers (and please check out our gallery of real lawyer bands):

Posted by Chuck Baxter: “For a similar battle of the lawyers’ bands, a group of us intellectual property professionals became The Infringers. Later we found out that AUTM, a licensing group, also had a group called …The Infringers! So we really were!”

Posted by John C.: “In law school I was part of a law student band called Res, Ipsa & the Loquiturs. We did some rewrites (‘I Shot the Sheriff—but I Did Not Waive My Legal Rights’) but also some original tunes (my favorite: “Ode to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure”). The nerd was strong with this band.”
