With dozens of sections and subsections, it wouldn’t be that easy to fit the Missouri Constitution in a shirt pocket.
In the past 10 years, 24 amendments have been proposed to Missouri's constitution. Not all of those propositions passed, but the Show Me State’s constitution has been changed more often than the federal one. (The U.S. Constitution has been amended 27 times.)
This year’s election cycle featured more constitutional amendments on the ballot – nine – than any time in last decade. Three of them passed in August, and four more will be decided Tuesday.
Former Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Wolff has been named as the new dean of Saint Louis University's School of Law.
Wolff is currently a professor at the School of Law and is the co-director of its Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Law. He sandwiched his judicial experience between his roles at SLU now and 23 years prior as a faculty member there.
Wolff is the School of Law's third dean in under a year.
