Law professor launches radio show to teach Constitution

Reaching far beyond his classroom walls at the Appalachian School of Law – and tapping some obvious broadcasting skills – law Prof. Stewart Harris hopes to bring the U.S. Constitution to life each week on his own radio show.

“Your Weekly Constitutional” airs each Tuesday at 8 p.m. on public station WETS out of East Tennessee State University.

The program began just this month and already has addressed topics including secession and the NYC Mosque controversy. Interviews with lawyers and other professors are part of the package.

Harris says he draws his conversational style from his approach to law students. “I find that the most effective way to teach them is to use relevant, entertaining anecdotes … The same principle applies on the radio,” he said in a news release.

The ASL news release is here and podcasts of the show can be found here.
