‘Absolutely no value’ in studying Constitution, federal judge says

Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner stated Friday that he sees “no value” in studying the U.S. Constitution.

Posner, a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, alleges in an op-ed for Slate that there is “absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation” because he believes the founding document is no longer relevant to contemporary society.
