As part of a special Constitution Day Initiative program for 2016, the Janus Center partnered with the Jack Miller Center to host a day-long Constitution Day event consisting in two roundtable discussions and a moderated conversation between Professor Akhil Reed Amar of Yale Law School and Professor Jeffrey Rosen of George Washington University Law School. These discussions engaged with a wide range questions concerning historical and modern interpretations of the U.S. Constitution. Like the other 2016 Jack Miller Constitution Day events, the University of Miami event was live-streamed.

University of Texas, Austin
In an event hosted by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Study of Core Texts & Ideas, Professor of History George Forgie delivered a lecture titled "Lincoln and the Constitution in the Civil War." “I would save the Union,” President Lincoln wrote to the New York journalist Horace Greeley during the Civil War. “I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution.” Some of his admirers have said he did exactly that. Some of his detractors have said that he sacrificed the Constitution in order to save the Union—and free the slaves. Forgie's lecture asked the question: what were Lincoln’s priorities? Specifically, how did he situate the Constitution among the many American treasures he said he wanted to preserve? The event was live-streamed.
