PA Constitutional Documentary Showing Tomorrow

Duquesne University School of Law, which has established itself as the leading center for the study and application of the Pennsylvania Constitution through such activity as the Pennsylvania Constitution Website (www.paconstitution.duq.edu), has initiated a project to gather information on a possible State Constitutional convention. One source of information is the living memories of participants in the last Pennsylvania Constitutional Convention, which was convened in December 1967 and adjourned in February 1968. 

The first significant work resulting from the project is a mini-documentary featuring former Governor Richard Thornburgh. This 20- minute film will be shown at the Law School on Tuesday, November 30, at noon in Room 203 and again at 5:15 p.m. in Room 204. Pizza and soda will be provided.
