The Constitution Project seeks consensus solutions to difficult legal and constitutional issues. It does this through constructive dialogue across ideological and partisan lines, and through scholarship, activism, and public education efforts.
The Constitution Project has earned wide-ranging respect for its expertise and reports, including practical material designed to make constitutional issues a part of ordinary political debate. The media, government officials, and interested organizations frequently call on us for information, interviews, and speaking engagements. We have testified before federal and state legislative committees, and our work has been cited in numerous reports and studies by government agencies, the media, and law and policy organizations. In addition, our blue-ribbon committee members frequently write opinion pieces and are often quoted in news articles.
