Washington University in St. Louis School of Law students Kailey Burger, Deona DeClue and Joseph Franklin are featured in TIME magazine’s online Fourth of July coverage focusing on the Bill of Rights.
In this series of 10 short videos, TIME “brings to life the words of the Founding Fathers and explores how these deeply felt ideas about liberty and property have evolved into the amendments as we interpret them today.”

Reporters filmed people across the United States reading and commenting on the Bill of Rights. Burger, DeClue and Franklin read the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Amendments, which focus on protection from self-incrimination, speedy trials and civil trials by jury.
The WUSTL students were filmed in St. Louis’ historic Old Courthouse, site of the Dred Scott case.
